International fintech organisation, Fexco is today launching its first Women in Payments Conference taking place in Killorglin, Co Kerry on March 6th 2019.

The event, this year themed ‘Diversity and Payments’ will welcome over 100 attendees and international speakers to Ireland’s South West, a region recognised as playing a significant role in Ireland’s burgeoning fintech sector.

On the week of International Women’s Day (March 8th) male and female speakers and attendees at the event will take the opportunity to explore insights into the continued evolution of payments and how an agenda of inclusion can inspire future success for Paymentechs and Fintechs alike.

The conference agenda will intertwine payment specific sessions like PSD2 and the latest trends in payment acceptance with inspiring expert views on fostering diversity in the workplace and the changing role of Women in Payments.

Speaking at today’s launch, Denis McCarthy CEO of Fexco said, ‘Diversity and Respect for the Individual are two of the foundations upon which Fexco was built, indeed they represent two of the company’s core values today. The Women in Payments Conference reflects these values, highlighting the integral role that a diverse workforce plays in the success of an organisation, particularly one with a global footprint like that of Fexco. I am particularly proud of my colleagues today for their hard work in bringing the event to fruition and would like to wish all attendees and speakers the best on March 6th.”

Commenting ahead of her role as speaker at the event, Sara Savidge, Head of Travel and Complex Markets – EMEA, First Data and member of First Data Women’s Leadership Council, said “I’m delighted to have the opportunity to speak at an event that celebrates diversity within a niche industry like payments. At First Data, we continue to champion diversity and inclusion, values that are clearly reflected in the work of our peers at Fexco. I greatly look forward to a day of lively discussion and debate around the latest trends in payment technology while highlighting the importance of diversity in the sector and would like to extend my thanks to Fexco for coordinating this important event.”

In addition to First Data, the event welcomes a host of international speakers and contributors from companies including Bambora, Mastercard, Sage Pay, Goodbody, FK Consulting, Accenture, AIB Merchant Services, Evo Payments, Consult Hyperion, Merchant Risk Council and the European Women in Payments Network to share their expert views on topics including; The Wave of M&A in a Consolidating Payments Landscape, Attracting & Retaining Talent, and PSD2 – Stifling or Stimulating Innovation?
