Innovation in Payments

Innovation in Payments 

Glenbrook's Innovation in Payments Workshop is offered several times a year as a small group session focusing on what's new and what's important.

These workshops are designed for alumni of Glenbrook's Payments Boot Camps - 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!
