"She was great, and the evening was a smash. We couldn't have asked more from Alfre. She really took time to become informed with the program and those involved, she touched on everything we could have hoped, without even asking her to. I would suggest you recommend her for other events."
"She was great and SO lovely. She insisted on meeting the girls of the organization before the event. She served them tea and cookies in her room. I gotta’ tell you,….after my two events this week, my capital is sky high."
"I haven't talked to one person who met her who didn't describe her as sweet, fantastic, beautiful---I could go on and on. She stayed and answered questions, signed autographs, and put up with MANY photographs.
Very much a pleasure to host. Hope she enjoyed her visit here as much as was possible."
"Alfre was absolutely WONDERFUL -- people are saying the best speaker ever!"
"Alfre was "powerful"! The event was very successful."
"Everything went well. Alfre was great! Generous with her time and energy. The audience loved her."
