FASTER
PAYMENTS

San Francisco, CA
June 6, 2019
$995

Introduction
Faster payments are happening all around the world – and even (to some extent!) in the United States. What are we talking about? The ability of a person or a business to send money immediately – in real time – to another person or business, using either a bank account or, in some cases, a non-bank payment account. It sounds simple, but there is a lot behind it. We’ll look at the mechanics of different models and examine how it would impact banks, non-bank payments services providers, and their customers.

  • Who Attends

    Glenbrook's Payments Education Program is useful for both experienced manages, 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 15,000 payments professionals have attended Glenbrook workshops. Attendees have included product, strategy and sales managers, technology operations and risk manages, investors, inventors and analysts, management teams from payments startups.

  • 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 changes to network during lunches and breaks.

Location

The Payments Boot Camp and the Global Payments Workshop will be held at the W Hotel in San Francisco.

W Hotel San Francisco
181 3rd Street, 2nd Floor
