"Alice has an extreme knack for keeping track of the hundreds of details that go into planning an event. She is extremely organised and knows exactly what to do to ensure that things go off without a hitch; I have heard people refer to her as a "manifester". On top of everything else that Alice does, she still manages to add an extra special touch to the events she organises. As an example, I once attended an event she helped organise where she saw to it to bring gifts of flowers for all the volunteer helpers - you can bet they'll be happy to help out again!"
