INNOVATION
IN PAYMENTS

Palo Alto, CA
December 5, 2019
$995

Introduction
Glenbrook’s Innovation in Payments Workshop is a small group session focusing on the latest developments in the payments industry. This 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. The agenda for each session changes based on what’s happening in the industry. The format ensures a highly interactive session!

  • 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 18,000 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.

  • 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.

Location

The Payments Boot Camp™ and the Innovation in Payments Workshop will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Palo Alto, CA – midway between the San Francisco and San Jose airports.
