Welcome to Parent Brain

Hi, My name is Rob Lambert.

I’m the author of The Employable Parent Brain and creator of the Parent Brain podcast.

I share content designed to help parents remain relevant, employable and effective. The knowledge that I share has been gained from 20+ years of management and hiring experience.

I’m a husband and father to 3 awesome boys. By day I run a management coaching and training company, deliver communication training and do plenty Keynote talks. In my spare time I record the Parent Brain podcast.

Why Parent Brain?

Parent Brain came about one cold winter night when I was browsing a popular parenting forum. I stumbled across a series of career related posts. I was saddened by what I read.

Talented, experienced, dedicated and eager parents who simply could not land jobs, get promoted or find meaningful work.

  • “Not enough experience”.
  • “Not relevant anymore”.
  • “Didn’t even get an interview”.
  • “Bodged it in the interview”.
  • “Out of date CV”.

And so I figured I could share my own knowledge and experience with other parents.

The Parent Brain model


The Parent Brain Model

In a nutshell we’ll focus on looking after the Pillars of life; Education, Health, Family, Money, Societal Impact and Effectiveness.

Coupled with this we’ll also look at how to be Effective AND Liked. Whilst many people are effective, they often are disliked by how they’re effective. Equally, there are plenty of people who are well liked but don’t get much done.

My goal is to help you balance the two by looking at Strengths Finder, DISC and Happiness and balancing these with SuperHero communication skills.

Parent Brain Foundation

I believe very strongly that every person (and animal) has the right to the best quality of life they can, even if that life may be short.

That’s why I donate 5% of all revenue from Parent Brain, and my other business Cultivated Management, to charity.

2.5% always goes to Naomi House – a hospice in Winchester for life limited children and their parents.

The other 2.5% goes to a different charity each year.

  • 2017 – Saving Linnea (complete)
