Glenbrook’s Payments Boot Camp is now open for registration, with classes available in New York in October, and in California in October and December.
This intense, two-day “deep dive” into the world of payments covers both the “basics” (value chains, flows, economics, players, trends – for all the major payments systems) as well as emerging payments. Day Two of the Payments Boot Camp provides an up-to-date, comprehensive tour of emerging payments, and creates frameworks within which to understand the actions of incumbents and challengers. What is the story with Google Wallet, V.me, Isis, PayPal, Square, LevelUp and Braintree?
This is a small-group session, providing ample time to network with other attendees and with the instructors.
In New York only there is a “Day Two Only” registration option – for alumni and other payments professionals who want only the recent developments. In California, there is a special one-day session on December 6th on “Payments 2013” – a look at what Glenbrook thinks will happen in the year ahead.
