“The Future of Retail Is Amazon—and It’s Not Even a Retailer.” Listen to Doug Stephens’ Excellent New Podcast.

Doug Stephens new podcast, Retail Prophet, kicked off this week with an analysis of Amazon: “Amazon is not a retailer at all. They’re a data, technology, logistics, service, innovation and media company that uses each of these competencies to weave a sticky web of conglomerate platforms.” This is omnipresence, says Stephens. And it’s the future of retail. 

Doug Stephens is one of the world’s pre-eminent retail speakers. His first book, The Retail Revival, predicted the dizzying growth of online retailers. His latest book, Reengineering Retail: The Future of Selling in a Post-Digital World is a practical road map for its future. This new podcast aims to document retail’s accelerated transformation in real time. 



Stephens’ research, insights and keynotes—required listening, truly, for anyone in the world of retail—have helped major organizations like Johnson & Johnson, Walmart, Disney, Google, Intel and Home Depot, in understanding exactly how demographics, economics, tech and media trend. His abundance of charisma and absence of jargon make the complicated and sometimes murky future of retail look crystal clear.
