    Module 1: Mobile + Customer Acquisition

    Dekkers Davidson
    Chief Executive Officer, Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX)

    Perhaps the most daunting task facing mobile payments pioneers today is to convince consumers that they should change the payments behaviors and habits they’ve been fine tuning over the past 60 years. After all, as many industry leaders have pontificated, consumers don’t feel that payments as a function is inherently broken. Our first session will offer Insiders the ability to learn how to tackle this problem head on and to gain critical in- sights from pioneers who are solving this challenge as we speak.
