“Susie is creative but not precious, diligent but not over-earnest, diplomatic but not a shrinking violet. She is a supreme professional who sets high standards for herself. She marshals and controls all the elements of a successful event effortlessly, skilfully, and with a smile. A key strength is her ability to leverage human relationships and to bring the best out of everyone on the team.”
“A big thank you to you Susie and your team at Sheil Entertainment Agency! You met the challenge of coordinating the same entertainment experience in 3 castles in 3 different locations at the same time – AV set up, lighting, staging and of course amazing performers – all without a slightest hitch.
Earlier in the year the extravaganza of entertainment over four floors at the Guinness Storehouse was superb.
We all love working with you – we speak the same language and have the same values!”

“On the 11th August 2018 Odyssey International organised and managed a private festival day at Ardgillan Castle and Demesne. It was part of “The Circle of Champions” programme, the largest incentive corporate group ever to visit Ireland as one single group with over 2600 guests. The S.E.A. team were amazing to work with during the entire journey, from conceptual stage over a year before, presenting the ideas to our client, delivering budgets on time and on the day, of course, delivering an impeccable programme and service. For this colossal project, it was imperative to partner with the best suppliers in each area of this day, in order to deliver an amazing experience for the guests and guarantee a memorable experience and success.
We decided to work with Sheil Entertainment Agency on this project as we have been working with Susie and her team for many years and were very confident they would create an amazing programme and deliver impeccably. Communication with Susie and her team is always open, frank, honest and jovial which is a great bonus and not to be underestimated.”
“We chose S.E.A. to help us host a very special personal event with all our family and friends in attendance. We wanted it to be an intimate evening with an understated, eclectic theme but with elements of surprise.
Coming from outside the industry and not knowing the relevant companies, we did our research and SEA came highly recommended both online and offline. SEA, under Susie's stewardship and Laura's operational implementation, exceeded all our expectations and helped us to create an unforgettable night.
Their level of preparation in advance of the event was meticulous. They gave their honest advice throughout yet ultimately listened to us, the clients. Their contacts throughout the industry meant that the quality of music, light, sound and overall entertainment was outstanding and extremely well produced. Moreover, they were a pleasure to deal with, fully transparent on costings and good value for money. We cannot recommend them highly enough and have no doubt we will use them again.”

Susie has assembled an incredible team of innovative professionals at Sheil Entertainment. It was a pleasure working with them and the results on the evening were outstanding.”

“With performers and contacts from a variety of backgrounds, Susie created a highly impactful and powerful event. The performers all knew each other, but this would be their first performance as a collaborative group. She successfully pieced together a tightly timed and choreographed show while the performers were spread across the globe. With a limited time to rehearse together, her communication, organization and preparation were critical. On the night of the program, as a result of her exceptional skill and professionalism, she developed an evening of entertainment that left our discriminating attendees and executives on their feet.”
“I had the pleasure of working with Susie on three events for our President's Award trip in 2013. We had venues secured and a rough vision for each event. Six weeks before the trip, we started working with Susie and that is when our vision turned to gold. Susie's vision, creativity, collaboration, energy, precision detail, amazing team and suppliers, and tons of hard work and long hours played such a big role in pulling each of these events together and delivering them flawlessly. I am grateful to Susie for her help in bringing these events to life and amazing our guests...guests who are still raving about these events months and months later.”
