This four-hour intensive workshop is designed for payments leads at U.S. financial institutions seeking to efficiently evaluate and productize a new real-time payment offering. Glenbrook will share practical, provider-agnostic guidance based on decades of experience in faster payments. Workshop participants will walk away with answers to questions like:

  • Why should I support fast payments?
