Training Introduction

There can be no doubt that the new Payment Services Directive (2015/2366/EC) (PSD2) is set to revolutionise banking services throughout the European Union (EU) and usher in a whole new host of unique and innovative payments systems and ideas. Given the sheer breadth of Payment Institutions affected by PSD2, the complexity of this new payments landscape should not be underestimated.

Firms need to not only become PSD2 compliant, but without a shadow of a doubt they also need to arm themselves with strategic insights that will allow them to successfully navigate and thrive in this newly forecasted complexity of payments systems and institutions. This new and innovative training course seeks to provide firms with highly comprehensive yet logical guidance through the new PSD2 framework, in addition to presenting insights into new strategic regulatory challenges and opportunities following the 13th January 2018 implementation date.

PART II of the PSD2 Transformation Series aims to provide a training course that provides unprecedented training and insights that are not available anywhere else. The PSD2 Technology, Strategy, and Innovation training course ventures far beyond the PSD and PSD2 operational frameworks and provides highly extensive and in-depth coverage of strategic approaches to PSD2 markets, technologies, and marketing and sales strategies
for payment services firms. It is precisely what PSD2 payments services firms have been waiting for.

A comprehensive analysis of PSD2 competitors, market commentary on current market developments in different EU jurisdictions, as well as strategic analysis of a broad range of market studies that highlight the compelling need for PSD2 payment firms to undertake both extensive market research and market education initiatives in order to successfully capture new PSD2 markets. PSD2 is no longer simply about compliance and it should not be viewed as a threat, but a one-of-a-kind strategic revenue opportunity to develop unprecedented offerings to consumers and businesses across the EU.

  1. Get the timing right.
    Many people are afraid to request for training budget, because they can’t seem to find the “perfect time” to do it. Well, there’s no perfect time to ask for it, but there are definitely some moments that are better than others. For instance, if your boss is about to take a two week vacation, he/she might be in a good mood. If he/she just lost a major account, may not be wise at that juncture.
  2. Make a case for yourself
    When you ask for budget, you should be prepared with specific details and explanations about what is in it for the company and you’re superior. If you go into a meeting and just say, “I want to get budget for a conference,” it’s likely that your request won’t be taken seriously. If you want to plan ahead, then you should be prepared to explain the following points:
    1. Start by stating your accomplishments
    2. Show that you’re ready for more responsibility and eager to learn
    3. Describe:
    a) How this event will increase your productivity?
    b) How you will need less supervision
    c) How you can bring back the knowledge to the company
    4. Follow up
You might find free to attend events which are usually organized by a solution/service provider within the industry. Unlike at free to attend events, on a paid event you will find more diverse industry knowledge rather than presentations related to services or solutions.
In case you cannot attend for both days, you can always attend for just 1 day of the event. In this case we will send you all presentations of the 2 days. The participation fee is 70% of the original investment. In case you would like to attend the event for just 1 day please contact us on booking[at]glceurope.com
In case you are busy on 1 of the days, you certainly can split the 2 day conference with one of your colleague. All you need to do is send us an e-mail to booking[at]glceurope.com
We understand that not all senior-level professionals might be available on the dates. As the event is an annual event, most of the attendees try to postpone their engagements or send a small group from their teams to benefit from the conference.
