Samantha Kelly has an incredible story. She started as a struggling single mother and business owner, but kept networking and building her community.
After seeing events that she wished she could attend in Ireland and seeing a need, she decided to put together her first event in Ireland, which lead to Social Media Dublin (which she now has sold).
Samantha now runs the Women's Inspire Network, which hosts several events throughout the year, including several larger-scale conferences.
I loved this candid conversation as we covered:
- Samantha's secret to building the concept first and building a community before the event (I absolutely love this one)
- How she landed her first sponsors and kept growing year after year
- How she overcame her fears and landed several big-name speakers at her first event
- How events have transformed her business
- Plus much more
