Understanding the value of retail during my time at P&G

When I first began working, I proactively visited retail sales spaces.
This gave me an understanding of things like why new products are positioned in certain locations, and how to set optimal pricing. I also gained an understanding of all the work put in by so many people to maintain a retail shop.
Eventually, I was entrusted to conduct negotiations on behalf of headquarters. During my negotiations with various buyers engaged in product procurement, I gained a deep appreciation of the commitment of buyers to work towards satisfying consumer needs, the decision-making processes involved expressing that commitment, and the difficulty of accomplishing this while engaging with so many people and so much information.
During my time working with people in retail from my position as a manufacturer representative, over a period of three-and-a-half years, I reached the conclusion that the essence of consumption lies in retail sales spaces and decision-making.

My time at Google, when I felt the potential of understanding the essence of things through data

After changing jobs and joining Google, I worked in ad sales with a focus on the retail industry and consumer goods manufacturers.
Engaging in the retail industry from a position that differed from my previous experience enabled me to understand the changes that influenced the industry and the issues faced by business managers.Against the backdrop of advancing digitalization and globalization, I came to understand the importance of the retail data that accumulated daily and how that data could be utilized. The retail industry was facing a paradigm shift. 
I conceived a framework for using the power of technology and marketing to accurately identify consumer behaviors and a new business model for linking sales spaces and the decision-making of the buyers making purchasing decisions.
