This weekly series of Retail Tomorrow podcasts features Sterling Hawkins, co-CEO and co-founder of CART-The Center for Advancing Retail & Technology, and MNB "Content Guy" Kevin Coupe teaming up to speculate, prognosticate, and formulate visions of what tomorrow's retail landscape will look like post-coronavirus.
Sterling and Kevin take a look back at last week's Congressional testimony by for technology CEOs - Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Apple's Tim Cook, and Google's Sundar Pichai - at a hearing that shed more heat than light. They use comments by the four executives to launch a broader discussion about competition, differential advantages, and the importance for retailers to "find their inner barbecue." (Trust us. The metaphor works.)
