During the 2016 Skift Global Forum, we had the pleasure of speaking with a host of the travel industry’s top leaders from across every sector.

And after first speaking to them on stage in front of the 1,000+ audience, we took another few minutes with them to ask follow up questions and get more insight in our backstage Skift Take Studio.

We spoke with MasterCard SVP, Global Merchant Development Catharina Eklof about her experience at Skift Global Forum, Mastercard’s evolution from payment provider to technology leader, and the looming convergence of messaging and payments.
