The point of sale in the United States is going through the early stages of a multi-year period of dramatic change. We are simultaneously witnessing a major shift in baseline technology – the move from mag stripe devices to EMV and NFC capable equipment, and a shift in technology and business models which are moving even many major merchants away from terminals entirely.

We believe the impact of this will stretch far beyond just EMV and NFC, impacting the introduction of new products and services, enabling a whole new class of customer loyalty and marketing, as well as other important commerce capabilities.

What’s happening, and what’s important?

  • 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
