GLOBAL PAYMENTS

“Cross-border payments are unquestionably one of the largest – and most lucrative – of the opportunity spaces in payments today. Navigating these waters is tricky – it helps to understand the basic infrastructures that make all of this work. Glenbrook’s Global Payments workshop is designed to do just that.”

— Elizabeth McQuerry

Many of our clients are global, and have payments professionals in locations around the world who want to stay current on developments in payments. Other clients are based in the United States but are expanding globally, and need to understand – and support – the payments needs of their customers, suppliers, employees, and partners.

Glenbrook’s Global Payments Workshop can be delivered either as an in-person training session at a location of your choice (in a one- or two-day format), or as a series of webinars.

  • Glenbrook's Payments Education Program is useful both for experienced managers, who often want to be updated on what’s happening in areas outside of their immediate domain, and for newcomers, who need a broad overview of the U.S. payments systems to create a context for their work.

  • Network with your peers
    Payments Boot Camp and workshop attendees enjoy opportunities to connect with other people in the industry, as well as with the Glenbrook team. Most two-day events have a networking reception at the end of the first day, and there are always chances to network during lunches and breaks.

  • Over 14,000 payments professionals have attended Glenbrook workshops. Attendees have included product, strategy, and sales managers, technology, operations, and risk managers, investors, inventors, and analysts, management teams from payments startups
