As the marketplace becomes increasingly more globalized, Cleveland Brown is becoming a more frequently called upon thought leader on global commerce and the payments industry-at-large.
(Los Angeles, CA) May 24, 2016 – As a proponent of global payment solutions and the entrepreneurial dream, Cleveland Brown is a regarded voice and advocate for corporate growth and “new generation” technologies and practices. As a sought after payments industry speaker, Brown is participating in a number of large conferences and panels across the United States this year. He is addressing a wide range of topics, including the growing global economy and the future of electronic payments.
“At its core, Payscout’s mission is focused on supporting the entrepreneurial dream one transaction at a time. We are excited to help entrepreneurs establish and grow cross-border businesses, and it is always an honor to stand with other like-minded industry professionals who also support this goal,” said Payscout CEO Cleveland Brown. “As a businessman who believes in serving his community, I look forward to sharing my experiences, knowledge and views on global commerce. And, as a leader in the rapidly changing world of global payments, I know there is always more to learn. It is an honor to be able to grow in my own professional knowledge while joining with peers to promote global entrepreneurism.”
Brown’s speaking tour kicked off mid-April with a stop at the Multichannel Merchant Growing Global conference in Cincinnati. He participated in a session directed to an audience of retail and eCommerce merchants on the topic of Understanding the Global Payments Landscape. The talk covered emerging international markets and considerations merchants should be aware of when pursuing a cross-border selling presence.
Shortly after, Brown participated in an industry-centric panel, entitled Enhancing Global Sales in a Seamless Marketplace. The panel presentation was part of Transact 16, the Electronic Transactions Association’s (ETA’s) annual payments industry conference held in Las Vegas.
Brown was also recently part of the 2015 ETA Capitol Hill Fly-In event, an instrumental event which influenced the passage of the newly signed Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA). The CISA bill seeks to safeguard secure customer data by allowing private firms to share cyber-threat information between companies and the Department of Homeland Security.
This week, Brown contributes again during the CardNotPresent.com Expo, once again addressing global entrepreneurs on the topic of cross-border payment solutions. The panel presentation is entitled Crossing the Rubicon: How to engage in and improve cross-border e-commerce. The CNP Expo is the leading U.S. conference and trade show for the card-not-present transaction market.
Payscout will also debut its groundbreaking virtual reality (VR) simulated shopping check-out experience at the CNP Expo, showcasing the concept of leading virtual reality into a business reality. The VR demonstration will take place at Payscout’s CNP Expo showroom exhibit, marking the first time the new technology has been introduced at a payments industry trade event.
“Virtual reality is a tremendously important emerging technology,” Brown stated. “As a thought leading global payment processing provider, it’s the right place for us to be, and it’s the right place for the message we’re bringing. We are very pleased to be at the forefront of showcasing VR to our industry colleagues and the industry’s CNP customers.”
Brown has also been invited to represent the industry again at Money 20/20, the world renowned break-out annual event for emerging payments, scheduled to take place in Las Vegas on October 23-26, 2016.
