Popcorn Moments come from being bold, remembering that life is about having fun, and being open to anything. This creates fertile ground for the unpredictable. People need Popcorn Moments. As do businesses. They make life interesting.

I met my business partners for my fashion brand outside a London bar. That was a Popcorn Moment. One partner was Ralf Little – the nice telly chap. Ralf looked after my dog Colin when I went for a wee. When I returned, Ralf’s friend had arrived. Zoë Rocha, daughter of fashion’s mighty John Roche CBE. A few weeks later, we were business partners.

The original Popcorn Moment was in my personal life. Unplanned, spontaneous and fun, too.

I was on a busy street with my 7 year old daughter, Izobel, and Lisa. The girls had planned a movie night. Izobel was excited! So excited that she began to chant loudly, over and over… “WE’RE HAVING A MOVIE NIGHT. WATCHING FILMS. WITH POPCORN.” Izobel was unstoppable. Unfortunate, because a 7 year old is susceptible to spoonerisms. So the street was treated to a 7 year old chanting, “WE’RE HAVING A MOVIE NIGHT. WATCHING FILMS. WITH COCK PORN.”

Over. And over. And over.

Popcorn Moments come from being bold, remembering that life is about having fun, and being open to anything. This creates fertile ground for the unpredictable. People need Popcorn Moments. As do businesses. They make life… interesting.
