INNOVATION IN PAYMENTS

Glenbrook’s Innovation in Payments Workshop is a small group session focusing on the latest developments in the payments industry.

This workshop is designed for alumni of Glenbrook’s Payments Boot Camp – or other people who consider themselves already well versed in the “basics” of the industry.

The agenda for each session changes based on what’s happening in the industry.  The format ensures a highly interactive session!

  • 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
