Future of Payments
The presentations made on the evening are available to be downloaded.
We have three core speakers with extensive industry experience:-
Mr Nicholas Masterson-Jones, Managing Director Transaction Services, Vocalink UK
Mr Russell Burke, Head of Strategic Development, Irish Payment Services Organisation
Wayne Stephens, Head of Banking at the UK Department of Work and Pensions
The Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) Direct Debits have been live now for over four months, and the Payments Services Directive is being gradually transposed into national legislation across Europe, but is this having the desired effect? Will cheque usage continue to tail off as taxation bites deeper in Ireland and what of discontinuance of this old favourite means of payment.
What of the challenges from mobile payments, what of global clearing houses, how will the economics of micro payments impact future patterns of payments???
These and many other questions continue to present challenges to everyone involved in the payments industry and we hope to address these and other core issues as we address the question of the Future of Payments.
