"Alfre's speech was fantastic and had so many quotable moments. About a week before the event, Alfre scheduled a phone call in order to learn about the work of the YWCA, get a feel for the event audience and flow, and better prepare herself for her speech. Her words were carefully crafted around the cause of our event and our audience noticed. I had several guests come up and say 'It seemed like she really understands our work and was talking specifically about the YWCA.' That was definitely a plus. We were just amazed at how engaging she was with our guests in general. Not only did she attend the VIP reception and make herself available for photos, Alfre chose to return to the main reception after the program and continue to mingle with our guests."
"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."
