P.P.S. I’m going to be in Seattle on May 10 at Microsoft. I’ll be sitting down with their Industry Leader Mariya Zorotovich at the Retail Tomorrow Immersion series to discuss the digital flywheel, leadership, and Microsofts’s investment in the omnichannel enablers of cloud, AI, and data. Please drop me a line if you want to connect.
