Austin is known for its great music, incredible food, and year-round outdoor fun. Everything’s bigger in Texas, including AvidXchange’s annual users conference! In celebration of our upcoming users’ conference, REVOLUTION 2016 (#REVTexas2016), we’re looking at some of the speakers and AvidXchange team members you’ll meet there, like Ed Robinson!

Ed “The Rainmaker” Robinson is CEO of Robinson Performance Group, Inc., a Houston-based firm that specializes in developing leaders, sales professionals, and business developers.

Since 1990, Ed has been transforming individuals into professionals, managers into leaders, and leaders into rainmakers. What is a rainmaker? They are the high achievers, the business developers, the moneymakers in your organization. According to Ed, “Anyone can be a rainmaker: the owner and executives who provide strong leadership, the sales team that brings in revenue, the employees who build client connections.”

A certified speaking professional and former CPA, Ed is the author of four books and recognized expert in Practice Growth. His energetic, engaging, and entertaining style is only one reason why Ed’s strategies improve performance helping individuals manage change and increase revenue regardless of economic obstacles and challenges. With a 40+% return engagement rate over his 30+year speaking career, Ed has addressed organizations in more than 30 countries, including Wells Fargo, American Airlines, Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Institute of Internal Auditors, MetLife, Merrill Lynch, Zurich Financial, Clear Channel/Time Warner, the U.S. Postal Service, Deloitte, Environmental Protection Agency, and NCR Corporation.
Ed will be speaking at REVOLUTION 2016, on behalf of the Institute of Financial Operations, on May 10-11 in Austin, TX.  In his keynote session, Lessons in Leadership, Ed will talk about the attributes of professionalism, change management, and business growth.

Having lived in Texas for over 35 years, Ed is no stranger to the Austin. “Whenever I visit Austin, I make sure to visit The Oasis on Lake Travis, the largest outdoor restaurant in Texas, and get some amazing Tex-Mex and lake views,” said Ed.
