under-noted video clip:-

 I have known Margaret Monaghan of ECM for a good few years now. Margaret is a person of exemplary                  character. She is a bit of an unsung heroine in her fostering of talents that have gone on to achieve                           extraordinary work in their own right. She will always be an asset to any enterprise who is lucky to

         have her visionary contribution.

                I couldn't recommend her highly enough!”
