Faith Popcorn

  • World Famous Trend Forecaster
  • Bestselling Author

The world’s premier Futurist Faith Popcorn has mesmerized audiences for decades and her Consultancy, BrainReserve, is responsible for adding incremental billions to  her clients’ C-suite portfolios. Her uncanny ability to identify and apply emerging cultural currents at least a decade out is the centerpiece of her legendary career.

Her presentations not only explore how our world will evolve but share category-specific implications that answer the uber question guiding her work: If you knew everything about tomorrow, what would you do differently today? She speaks on an array of provocative topics, including Corona-Cocooning: Our Post-Pandemic Future; The Future of Work; Wellness 2030; The Future of Masculinity, Child-Free by Choice, A Gender-Fluid Future, and The Rise of Plant Foods. 

Dubbed the “The Trend Oracle" by The New York Times and “The Nostradamus of Marketing” by Fortune, Faith has named and framed such sweeping societal movements as “Cocooning," “99 Lives,"  AtmosFear” and “Vigilante Consumer." During times of uncertainty or short-sighted decision-making, she has propelled global giants such as Allergan, Chipotle, Citigroup, Comcast, Constellation Brands, The Home Depot, Investec, Johnson & Johnson, Nike, PepsiCo, and Tyson. Her legendary leadership has led to double-digit market-share gains, time and time again with her ability to describe Tomorrow in great detail and astounding authority. 

She is a best-selling author of The Popcorn Report, which introduces the world to the practice of future-tracking; Clicking; EVEolution; Dictionary of the Future and the upcoming book The Popcorn Report, 2030. Faith is frequently interviewed and cited in the media by The New York Times, Time, Newsweek, Fortune, “The Today Show," “Face the Nation," and CNN as well as all the social channels. She has launched a podcast entitled Jolty which covers topics help us spot the trends as we live them.
