Parent Brain

Every Saturday I send out a curated list of 5 articles, plus an article of my own, designed to inspire, motivate, educate and exhilarate your Parent Brain.

No meal plans, no giveaways, no sponsored product reviews – just good old fashioned food for your Parent Brain.

Hi, I’m Rob Lambert

I’m the person behind this newsletter.

I’ve been obsessed for years with how people can evolve, grow and develop in their careers. By day I’m a management and HR consultant, breaking down what work really is, how people succeed and what makes a great employee.

It’s sad I know, but these learnings are the bedrock of Parent Brain.

Each week I read lots of content to find you the very best 5 articles for your parent brain.

Why just 5 articles – easy. We don’t always have a lot of time as busy parents, so 5 seems to be just about right.

I also accompany the 5 articles with one of my own articles. Sometimes these are epic articles. Sometimes they are short and sweet.

Parent Brain came about after browsing a popular parenting forum and being saddened by what I read. Talented, gifted and experienced parents unable to thrive in work.

Sometimes, parents simply can’t find a job, other times they are overlooked for promotion. It’s my mission to support and help as many parents as possible to thrive in work.

Thriving in work is a personal thing, so I don’t preach about what people *should* do – I simply share good articles and my own experience.

Absolutely no meal plans, no competitions, no product reviews – just food for your parent brain.

I am married with three children, all boys. I live in Winchester, Hampshire, but was born and raised in the steel city of Sheffield. I’m a Yorkshireman living in Hampshire.

I podcast about stationery, take photos, write and teach. I also love a good conference.

If you’d like to support this project then please consider buying the Employable Parent Brain book or sitting my online communication course.

I don’t hang out much on Facebook, but I share my posts there.

I do hang out on Instagram, so don’t hesitate to say hi.


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?
