Behind The Mic

John Dee

Show Host

In the early days of the Internet, I was lucky enough to work at MCI on Vint Cerf’s Internet team where we had a front row seat to a communications revolution. Later I moved from the world of Internet plumbing into Internet applications and services. I became fascinated by how people and society interacted digitally, and the impact that was having on retail and commerce.

Today, I feel lucky to lead an amazing team of professionals at PlaceWise Digital who work hard to contribute in our own modest way to the digital revolution in retail.  

Stephanie Shriver

Show Host

I am a former “Mall Rat” and veteran of the Shopping Center and Commercial Real Estate Industries (let’s just leave it at that). 

I love retail! What keeps my love alive?  The passionate belief that technology holds at least one of the keys to restoring the eye-popping, jaw dropping, awe inspiring retail experience of the future.
