Glenbrook’s Advanced Payments Insight 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. This workshop takes a deeper look into four of the top industry topics – Digital Payments, Fast Payments, Digital Currency Payments, and Global Payments.

  • Who Attends

    Glenbrook's Payments Education Program is useful for both 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.

    Over 30,000 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.


The Payments Boot Camp® and the Advanced Payments Insight Workshop will be held at The Juniper Hotel in Cupertino, CA.
