EDCO’s Central Oregon PubTalk, held the fourth Thursday of the month, is a happy hour aimed at bringing together different facets of the business community in one place to network, share ideas and further local businesses.

Keynote Speaker
Maggie Hubbell, VP of Operations,; former CEO, Agency Revolution
With over 15 years of executive leadership experience in software startups and entrepreneurial companies, Maggie will take the stage to talk about how just last year she led SaaS company Agency Revolution and a staff of 30 through a successful strategic acquisition. A process she compared to “getting a college degree in 60 days.”

Maggie is currently VP of Operations at, a Portland-based behavioral messaging platform used for automating personalized customer communications with clients like Trello, The Knot, and Codecadamy.

This keynote will focus on the roller coaster of leading a company through an acquisition, the adaptation needed to close a deal, and the ability to embrace the challenges and breakthroughs that inevitably come along the way.
