My wife is a meeting planner, but is getting sick of it, what other careers can she pursue with those skills?

My wife is a meeting planner, not a party planner, but a 8,000 people in a convention center, meeting planner. However she is growing tired of this industry. Trying to figure out what else she can do with her life.
* The most organized person I know. I mean scary organized. She can take any chaos and make and organized system out of it. This includes not just people, but seeing how systems should work.
* Has lots of business experience. She almost literally grew up in an office.
Her undergrad is in sociology, but she has done nothing with it.
So far we have thought about starting her own organizing business or perhaps going into organizational development.
So I guess the question is what can a professional who is very very organized do as a career?
I should also note: this can be a long term thing. For example build to something over two years...but full time school is probably out of the question.
