The Rainmaker, it seems, is coming to York.
Ed Robinson, known in some circles as “The Rainmaker” for his expertise in growth and marketing, will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Minority and Women Owned Business Luncheon, according to a news release from the City of York.
The second-annual event — set for 11 a.m. on Tuesday, April 23 at the Yorktowne Hotel — is titled “Growing Diverse Businesses in the City of York.” It will include a business networking session, lunch and a presentation.
From The Rainmaker.
Mayor Kim Bracey is expected to also attend the luncheon, and noted in the release the session’s value to some local business owners.
“This is a great opportunity to provide an outlet for the minority- and women- owned businesses in our community to network and gain invaluable resources that can assist in the perseverance of their businesses,” she said.
And, well, there’s The Rainmaker.
He is a recognized expert in practice growth, according to the release, as well as a seasoned entrepreneur, marketing and business coach, and professional speaker.
According to his website, his industry specialties include services and sales, and he has a 40 percent return engagement rate in his speaking career. The Rainmaker lists his fee for a keynote speech at $7,500.
There is a $10 charge for the York event, according to the news release, and anyone can register by contacting Edquina Washington at (717) 849-2200, or email@example.com.
The luncheon is meant to provide insights on how to sustain businesses, as well as raise awareness of the diverse businesses in the community, the release states. And along the way the keynote speaker is said to provide “a wealth of leadership and growth strategies.”
That, no doubt, is why he’s The Rainmaker.
