Emerging technologies in the health and wellness segment are empowering consumers who more and more are invested in self-care … which can best be defined as a cultural trend keyed to people who want to feel good, look good, live longer and live better. In this new Retail Tomorrow podcast, recorded in front of a live audience at the recent GMDC Selfcare Summit, we talk about the technologies and trends that we heard about there, provide insights into how consumers will interact with them, and offer guidance to companies looking to invest in this burgeoning segment.

Our guests for this podcast are members of the regular Retail Tomorrow podcast family:

• Tom Furphy, CEO and Managing Director of Consumer Equity Partners.

• Nancy Giordano, a strategic futurist who specializes in the post-digital world.

• Sterling Hawkins, co-founder of the Center for Advancing Retail & Technology.

The host: Kevin Coupe, MorningNewsBeat’s “Content Guy.”

You can listen to the podcast here, or on iTunes and GooglePlay.
