Our Story

Humans are curious creatures. In fact, that might just be our more distinctive trait.

With a rapidly changing social, technological and business landscape, like the one we have had for the last several decades, and the idea that one’s learning should be confined to some particular time at school suddenly seems very bizarre and antiquated.

Lifelong education to the rescue then; which, in a corporate training context, translates to employee continuous training.

To complement the Academy we have developed a comprehensive information portal that provides valuable information about the payments industry that reduces your need for research; let us do it for you.

The Payments Business & Academy is a company incorporated in England and Wales with registered number 12218260 whose registered address is 3rd Floor Crown House, 151 High Road, Loughton, Essex, United Kingdom, IG10 4LG and it operates the website http://thepaymentsbusiness.com.
