Global Payments

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 new 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.


  • Next Session - October 15, 2015
  • Location - Palo Alto, CA

Glenbrook's Elizabeth McQuerry is the program manager.
