On Day One, we do a fast, comprehensive overview of the core payments systems, the perspectives of the constituents (consumers, merchants, networks, processors....) and the economic, technical and regulatory levers that make it all work. We finish Day One with a session on Global Payments, covering both local country payments systems and the critical topic of cross-border payments. On Day Two, we help you understand mobile wallets (along with all the other many emerging payments plays) in context of the overall payments industry.

This spring we are also offering a one day Special Workshop on "Innovation in Payments" on May 9th in Palo Alto, CA.

Agendas, testimonials, and logistics information is available on the Glenbrook Payments Essentials website.
