When Ailish Cantwell set up her Bespoke Public Relations business in 2003 she chose to name it Inspire PR. When you meet Ailish you realise that the name is really appropriate as Ailish is truly inspirational and her passion for her business really shines through. Ailish has gained vast experience in the PR/Communications arena with particular emphasis on the hospitality & travel sectors having spent a number of years working in the both the K Club in Straffan and The Clarence Hotel in Dublin. (She also gained a Husband, Cathal, who she met while working in The Clarence).
Back when she set up InspirePR she also decided to start her family and since then Ailish has not only built a successful business she has raised her 2 children as well and as any working mum will tell you doing both sometimes requires that you perform like Superwoman.
The reason InspirePR is the so successful and has attracted clients of the calibre of Kelly’s in Rosslare, Aghadoe Heights Hotel, The Ice House Hotel and Café en Seine in Dublin is in the main due to Ailish’s innate ability to decipher what exactly the customer wants. She offers constant performance and advice on Marketing Communications, publicity and strategic public relations. She has built a strong network of media relationships over her years in the business and is widely respected by the media for her professionalism honesty and integrity.When you couple all of this with Ailish’s creative ability and her attention to detail you can see why so many of her clients have chosen Ailish to manage their communications and PR.
Ailish is an excellent role model for all female entrepreneurs and in particular, for those considering and just starting out on their entrepreneurial expedition. And if you want to know the secret to striking a balance between raising a successful new business and a well-balanced family it is worth a phone call to Ailish.
We have nominated Ailish and InspirePR for an Ulster Bank Business Achievers Award under the Women led business category because we believe she is an excellent example of how female entrepreneurs can blaze a trail in their chosen field.
