"I have had the great pleasure of working with Norah Casey on 4 events and believe that we have developed a rapport that will see her acting as MC at many more of my Awards ! Norah is an engaging, witty and warm MC - whose observations and comments transcend different age brackets and backgrounds.  She is personable and professional - comes to events well prepared, can command and hold the attention of large audiences at evening events (no easy feat) and gives Awards events, in particular, a certain gravitas through her strong personal business acumen." - Donna O'Connor, Blacksquare, July 2016
