Nick Telford-Reed, Stormglass Consulting Ltd

A passionate, award-winning technology innovator, communicator, and leader of both people and strategy in the service of great customer experience. Comfortable on either side of the product/technology line, I work to develop compelling visions of the future, to build strategies to move towards those goals, and to build and run engaged, enthused, self-organised teams to develop and deliver products and services to customers.

Beginning my career in start-ups before joining global payments giant, Worldpay, in 2001, I have led engineering and product teams through divestments and acquisitions, crossed the chasm from challenger organisation to incumbent world leader and consistently built process and capability on-shore, near-shore and off-shore with the aim of delivering agile technology and product organisations. I have led engineering teams as CTO of the Worldwide Payment Gateway and latterly led Worldpay’s architecture and innovation teams.

In 2018, my team won Best Mobile Payment Initiative at the Cards and Payments Awards and in 2019, I founded Stormglass Consulting to provide high-impact consulting to the payments, identity and fintech sectors.

At the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) [an international community that develops open standards to ensure the long-term growth of the Web], I am the chair of the Web Payments Working Group, and am also an invited expert in the European Working Group of the FIDO Alliance global identity authentication organisation.

Having trouble signing?

We use an auto-login link to ensure optimum security for your members hub. Simply enter your professional work e-mail address into the input area and you’ll receive a link to directly access your account.

First things first

Have you set up your Member account yet? If not, click here to do so.

Still not receiving your auto-login link?

Instead of using passwords, we e-mail you a link to log in to the site. This allows us to automatically verify you and apply member benefits based on your e-mail domain name.

Please click the button below which relates to the issue you’re having.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
