My first introduction to the MRC was MRC Vegas in 2018, and I can honestly say that day I found my people. When you walk into that conference and see all the various sessions that are taking place on topics you’ve always wanted to query people about. While you talk within your organization about these issues, and you can strategize how to approach different problems, it’s not until you’re immersed in payments experts and working directly with your peers that you can start to figure out how to overcome shared obstacles.
Fraud is hard to fight in a bubble; therefore, we leverage the network the team has built over time and through the years. This network is refreshed every year by taking part in industry conferences and events, many of which are hosted by the MRC. These gatherings give us a great opportunity to understand the new trends and new technologies, as well as exchange experiences with peers from other leading companies.
If you want to be an expert in the payments industry, an MRC event is the place to be. There is no other organization I have seen that cares so much about the industry in general, that wants to educate consumers and merchants. It’s a fantastic opportunity. Anybody who is starting their career in the payments industry should come to MRC events because there is something to learn from everybody.
