The mission is simple - to provoke debate, awaken critical thinking, and to help people break Free of Dumb’, in all its many forms. How? Well, through discussions and thought-pieces that stimulate thinking and debate. We'll discuss aspects of leadership, take look at purpose and branding, how we might navigate the ‘no-normal’, how to uncover facts in a post-truth world that is awash in a sea of fake news and conspiracy theories. Over time we will explore ways to practice critical thinking to form our own conclusions and aid our decision-making. We don't want to try and tell people what to think, we just want to help everyone break free of 'dumb’ in all its many forms. Lee Parkinson is a brand strategist, creative thinker and curious human. He is fascinated with human behaviour - what we actually do, even though it is often quite different from what we say, think, or feel.

About the Host

Lee Parkinson


Strategist. Creative thinker. Curious human.
I started my career in the British Army. From there I made the somewhat ‘natural’ progression into sales & marketing on the client-side, followed by a move to the agency side some 20 years ago.
I am relentlessly curious, and fascinated with human behavior - by what we actually do, not just what we say, think, or feel.
