Women’s Inspire Network continues to offer support to members through challenging times

The Network has been selected for Virgin Media’s #BackingBusiness campaign


Thursday, October 15th: As many people face into a winter of remote working, online business groups are key in ensuring workers stay connected to their business networks. The Women’s Inspire Network offers members a fantastic opportunity to attend online networking events and feel supported by fellow female entrepreneurs.


Founded by Samantha Kelly (@Tweetinggoddess on Twitter), the Network offers a subscription model where members pay €20 per month for mentoring, weekly webinars, access to a private Facebook group and even online coffee! Missing that ‘water cooler’ moment isn’t an issue in the virtual world, and the community has now grown to over 400 members globally including those based in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.


And now, as part of Virgin Media’s #BackingBusiness campaign, the Network featured on Ireland AM today, October 15th. #BackingBusiness is focused on supporting Irish businesses as they continue to navigate through the challenges brought on by COVID-19.


Samantha Kelly, Founder of Women’s Inspire Network, said:” 'I am so proud of the network as our ethos is to support, celebrate and help with confidence, skills, and provide a safe and friendly place with experienced business owners who can help someone coming up along who might need it. It's a lovely network, so positive, and I enjoy watching our members shining online.'


“I am so grateful for the opportunity that Virgin Media and Ireland AM have given small business owners like myself. During this pandemic it's more important than ever to support each other and share our knowledge and tips to help others”,


Since launching in May, #BackingBusiness has featured hundreds of businesses across Virgin Media TV and social media platforms.  Many Irish businesses are working together to support Ireland’s plan for Living with Covid-19. The business team in Virgin Media want to continue to help each business to get back on their feet through our weekly promotion on Ireland AM.  Simply contact backingbusiness@virginmedia.ie and we’ll do the rest.
