Our Story

How Popcorn Came To Be

An epic tale of bite-sized brilliance

We were founded upon the belief that there was a need for transformation in elearning. The principle was simple, it was time to build credibility in the space. Founders Mark and Eric looked to apply their forty years of experience in the industry to facilitate this change.


Blending commerciality with the creative, Popcorn Learning Media was born. Built on the ethos that all work should be simple, beautiful, engaging and effective, Popcorn have seen huge success in delivering inspiring projects to national brand clients.


That was just the start. A new era dawns in 2023, the business is on a journey to demonstrate the value e-learning can play in impacting executive level decision making; delivering measurable results that matter; saving time, reducing risk and increasing profit.


All without losing a pop of that bite-size brilliance.

Learning first, tech second.

Having learning and development professionals at the helm has always given Popcorn an edge. While so many agencies have their foundations in either technology, marketing or communications, Popcorn has always tackled projects from a learning and development perspective first. We then layer the tech in after – the technology most suitable for achieving the learning objectives.

This has made Popcorn popular with large employers, because talking the same language, understanding business constraints, creating engaging learning interventions and showing return on investment are all significantly more important than paying out for the latest technology if it’s not going to be used effectively.

It's all in the name

Popcorn got its name because of the type of learning that we produce. We work hard to simplify the subjects we tackle and then break them down into small, easily-digestible bite-sized chunks – a bit like the learning equivalent of actual popcorn. Even the most broad and complex subject can benefit from this approach. The book might still be big, but the chapters are short. And we make sure it’s a real page-turner too!

So, that’s us. Popcorn – the home of bite-sized brilliance.
