Next Generation Payments

Digital continues to disrupt and change the way we think about payments. It’s no longer only about the payment, both the experience and end to end engagement are now key. Through convergence of technologies, we start to see new channels and new ways of bringing payments into the hands of the consumer. In this talk you will be taken on
a journey from Open Banking through to a future, which is a closer than you think, with real examples and some key things to consider, we turn what seems to be science fiction, into science fact.
