What previous attendees thought of the course:

Payments 101 was an incredibly informative and engaging session. In an industry that is fairly siloed it is very interesting to take the time to look at the end-to-end ecosystem. Fantastic presenter and great group of attendees. Jossie Ellis, CEO, Levima
