What a year it has been! I recently posted an article on PaymentsViews.com summing up some of my thoughts - it begins:
Twelve months ago, there were still people in our industry who didn't know what Bitcoin was. There were still people who believed that EMV would roll out in the U.S. just like it did in the UK or Canada or ... There were still people who thought that the developing world would build payments systems that work like those of the developed world. And I could go on...but have decided to look forward, instead.
What are the key developments and ideas for payments in the year ahead? At Glenbrook, we've been thinking about the most important themes that describe both the current state of affairs and the new innovations that matter - to help bring the crystal ball into focus.
I hope you'll continue reading the rest of my article "The State of Payments: 2014" on Payments Views!
It's also been an incredible year for the team here at Glenbrook. We've particularly enjoyed our ongoing interactions with our clients and with the attendees of our boot camps and payments workshops. We thank you very much for your trust and confidence in us.
Please let your colleagues know that we have two Payments Boot Camps coming up early in 2014 - one in Palo Alto, California (February 4th & 5th) and one in New York City (March 18th & 19th). Follow this link for more information on the current agenda, testimonials, and online registration.
The world of payments continues to impress and excite us. We hope we can educate, support, and inspire each other in 2014!
Best wishes for a great 2014 from all of us here at Glenbrook.
