As key strategist for BrainReserve, Popcorn uses her insight on cultural and business trends to develop new products, reposition established brands, and define areas of new business opportunity.
Documented as having a 95% accuracy rate, Popcorn correctly predicted the demand for fresh foods, four-wheel drives, and the failure of New Coke. She was the first to target the stay-at-home syndrome and to anticipate the explosive growth in home delivery, home businesses, and home shopping. Her hour-long seminar, which focuses on how today's trends are affecting consumer lifestyles and purchase behavior, has been presented to thousands of audiences across the globe.
Popcorn is a graduate of New York University and New York's High School for the Performing Arts. She lives and works in Manhattan and Wainscott, New York.
