Glenbrook’s Payments Boot Camp is an intensive, two-day “deep dive” into the U.S. payments systems, providing a unique cross-payments system view of the industry. Throughout the two days, these sessions will focus on understanding how current trends and issues will affect the status quo and on how new and emerging players may complement–or threaten–the industry incumbents.
The February 2011 session will be held in Santa Clara, California. The instructors for the session are Scott Loftesness and Carol Coye Benson. The event provides plenty of time for interaction with the instructors, and with the other people at the camp. There is a complementary networking reception on the first evening.
Each section is designed to encourage interactive participation by the audience.
