Posted by

Welcome to episode #904 of Six Pixels of Separation – The ThinkersOne Podcast.

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – The ThinkersOne Podcast – Episode #904. In the ever-changing and expanding universe of retail, Jason Del Rey stands as a chronicler of commerce, a journalist who’s been demystifying the confluence of retail and technology with a critical yet insightful lens. Jason has been the voice behind the curtain, peering through the glittering facades of retail industry giants (namely Walmart and Amazon) and penning the narratives that shape our understanding of modern commerce. His expertise as a business journalist has graced the pages of Recode, where he’s dissected the complex ecosystem of e-commerce, scrutinizing the moves of major players and the seismic shifts they create across the global market. In his new book, Winner Sells All, Jason unpacks the colossal clash between Amazon and Walmart, entities vying not just for market dominance but for the very essence of consumer loyalty. This isn’t merely a story of two titans in a tug-of-war – it’s an exposé on how their rivalry redefines the contours of retail and the stakes involved in winning the wallets of a global audience. As a journalist, Jason has had a front-row seat to the evolution of retail dynamics, witnessing firsthand how digital strategies have revolutionized consumer behavior and expectations. His book is also much more than a chronicle of competition, it’s a lens through which we can view the future of retail, illuminated by the past’s lessons and the present’s innovations. And, as we all know, it stretched beyond retail into other dimensions like cloud services, healthcare, and more. What Jason offers in Winner Sells All is a treasure trove of insights gleaned from years of reporting and conversations with executives who are (or were) in the mix. He is the host of Land of the Giants: The Rise of Amazon, a narrative podcast series. His exploration goes beyond the surface, diving into the strategies, leadership philosophies, and corporate cultures that fuel these retail juggernauts. Enjoy the conversation…
