Libra Events

Why Libra?

At LIBRA Events we pride ourselves on the old and new relationships we have built throughout our careers with clients, partners and suppliers. Our clients, suppliers and partners are the people than enable us to fulfil our roles as expert event management professionals and enable and inspire us to create exceptional events. Below are some testimonials from clients, suppliers and great people we have worked with along the way.

“The committee of the Belfast Solicitors’ Association (BSA) first engaged Ross and Judith to assist with the running of last year’s gala dinner, held at the Ulster Folk &Transport Museum. The event was a spectacular success. It was therefore a very easy decision for me as this year’s BSA Chairman to work with Ross, Judith and the team at Libra Events for our events this year. However this year I wanted Ross and Judith to become involved from the very outset. They both work brilliantly as a team; there is always a “nothing is impossible” attitude to what they do – and they do what they do brilliantly! Ross and Judith bring professionalism, meticulous planning, huge expertise, industry knowledge, and perhaps most importantly, their personality to the event. This year our corporate golf day at Malone Golf Club was a resounding success. Earlier this month we held our gala dinner at the Crumlin Road Gaol for 200 guests including judiciary and visiting dignitaries from Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland. Everyone waxed lyrical about the entire “experience” and Ross and Judith delivered. Libras are known as the “diplomats” of the Zodiac, with “captivating charm” and “elegant taste”. Ross and Judith embody all the characteristics of the “sign” and I cannot commend or recommend Libra Events highly enough!”

Paul Dougan – Chairman, Belfast Solicitor’s Association

“Having worked with Judith & Ross at the Food and Drink Show NI in Ireland last year I have to congratulate them on setting up on their own. A dynamic duo who have energy, enthusiasm , ideas and real motivation. A pair of professionals who care about people but more importantly what the public need and want. An exciting time ahead for these two young entrepreneurs.. Good luck guys!”

John Torode – Masterchef

“Libra Events did a fantastic job of managing the CIPD NI Awards. From the start of the submission process to the end with the fabulous gala ball at Belfast City Hall, they were extremely professional and helpful. Any questions we raised throughout the process was answered speedily and efficiently. Nothing was ever too big a problem and everything was managed to an extremely high standard. Would highly recommend using them again for any small or large scale corporate events as they make everyone feel valued!”

Elaine O’Neill – Senior HR Manager, SEHSC Trust

“I have worked with Ross across a variety of events over the last 4 years and they have all been exceptionally well organised and professionally run. Ross is flexible, approachable and most importantly a problem solver.”

Mark Reilly – Classified Advertising Manager, Belfast Telegraph

“Now that we are all back safely and the dust has settled I feel I had to write to you to thank you for your sustained efforts over the past nine months in making this Conference the great success which it undoubtedly was. As you know we met regularly in the long lead – in to the conference and followed an exact agenda as to how the Conference would run, covering the very many angles which were involved. You were always extremely attentive to detail, extremely courteous and extremely diligent in your overall administration of your duties. We had a great working relationship and never had a cross word despite encountering on the way some pressure situations. You also had a very good working relationship with the rest of the Committee and the Law Society personnel. You always had a cool head and a solution to suggest. These talents are all too vital when dealing with 150 people on a busy conference programme in a foreign city management onsite during the event was great and you had no problem troubleshooting on any problems which arose (as they always do). You had calmness under pressure, had a professional and polite attitude with delegates and went “the extra mile” to be helpful to them.  Thanks for all again.”

Rory McShane – Past President, Law Society of Northern Ireland

“I have had the pleasure of working with Judith and Ross at a number of events in the past and I know when they are in charge everything will run smoothly. They are unflappable and manage to sort out any glitches or problems even before they have happened. They are very professional and a joy to work with.”

Pamela Ballantine – TV Presenter and Host

“Libra Events provided a range of event management services for CIPD Northern Ireland. Working with Ross and the team for a period of almost one year, we were struck by their professionalism, their client focus and commitment to first class delivery. In conjunction with the Committee, LIBRA Events managed four key Masterclass and conference events for us as part of our Centenary Year celebrations and carried these off superbly well. Our signature event was our Gala Centenary Awards held in Larchfield estate and we simply couldn’t have done it without the support and hard work of Ross and his team. Guests and Committee alike were impressed by the event management skills, their attention to detail and the seamless organisational skills which resulted in a truly amazing night. Huge thanks to everyone at Inform it has been a great experience working with you all and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to others.”

Donal Laverty – Chairman, CIPD NI

“From Award Shows, Meet the Buyer Events, Outdoor Festivals, product launches, conferences and everything in-between. LIBRA Events have always had a professional attitude and approach with complete focus to ensure your event clients received exactly what was expected and beyond. It made the difference between a great show and a fantastic show. Your experience shines through as from the start you filled me with confidence knowing your attention to detail and your commitment to understand that every specific requirement for each event, which changed on a daily basis, was dealt with swiftly and in your own calming manor. Overall I am extremely impressed for all the reasons above but also your ownership of all of the events we have worked together on. I truly hope to find ourselves working together on many future events now LIBRA Event Management is here and I always enjoy working with such high calibre individuals such as yourself.”

Dave Carter – Director, Corporate AV Hire

LIBRA Events have managed the InterTradeIreland Event Management Contract since 2018. Ross Licence has been our dedicated project manager on a number of major Meet the Buyer events over the last two years. I and my team have found him to be extremely dedicated, hardworking and approachable. He has resolved issues with the minimum of fuss and been instrumental in proposing new delivery formats and utilising technology to improve the customer experience. This has recently been evidenced as he converted our very successful physical MTB events onto a digital, virtual platform with minimal disruption and very positive feedback from buyers, suppliers and public bodies. From recommending the new platform, promoting it to internal stakeholders, making sure that the technology supported multiple functionality and delivering a first rate job, Ross led not only the Libra team but a number of external IT providers and delivered the event seamlessly and to a very high standard. Our partner, NI Water was constantly reassured throughout the process by the professional approach taken by Ross and the LIBRA Team and universally positive feedback was received from them and the 300+ participating companies after the event. I would strongly recommend LIBRA Events, the team are consummate event professionals who seamlessly delivered our recent Virtual MTB to a very high standard.
