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.

  • Glenbrook's Payments Education Program is useful both for 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.

  • 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 chances to network during lunches and breaks.

  • Over 15,000 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
