Creative Soul
In a corporate role.

Welcome to Parent Brain. My name is Rob and I share ideas, insights, creations and behind the scenes as a creative soul in a corporate role. And how to manage that tension as a parent.

If you feel like you were designed to create but can't make this your job, then maybe this is the community for you.

I share my thoughts and ideas in a weekly newsletter.

Hi and welcome.

My name is Rob Lambert and Parent Brain is an exploration of how to be a “Creative soul in a corporate role”. I’m geared to create for the sake of it: art, photography, videos, posters, letters, paintings, woodwork etc, but the corporate world doesn’t always lend itself to supporting my creativity.

Plus, with a growing family, mortgages and all of the other things that come with life as a parent, there’s a tension to manage.

The Parent Brain newsletter is an exploration of holding on to your creative dreams, hobbies and pursuits.

I’m aiming for weekly but life can sometimes get in the way. I aim to share ideas on how I manage the tension between parenting, work and creativity. I aim to share what I actually create. I aim to share behind the scenes of the creative process.

Most of the content shared here will relate to my main business Cultivated Management, but some of it will be just stuff I’ve created or what’s on my mind.

This newsletter itself is a creative pursuit, so it will change, adapt, sometimes fail but I hope it inspires anyone else who feels like a creative soul trapped in a corporate role.

I don’t do much social media but you can find me on Instagram


I’m the author of The Employable Parent Brain  and the creator of an online communication workshop.

I read lots of books – and only recommend ones I think are worth reading more than once.

5% of proceeds from the book and the communication course are donated to charities.


Thanks for stopping by.


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.

  • 2015 – Unicef (complete)
  • 2016 – Pencils of Promise (complete)
  • 2017 – Saving Linnea (complete)
  • 2018 – WWF (complete)
  • 2019 – Naomi House (complete)
  • 2020 – Still deciding. Any suggestions?
