Butler Training

The modern Butler is an all-encompassing role that demands perfection. We believe a perfect Butler must give his or her principal the very best service they can: Etiquette, discretion, elegance, a desire to go the extra mile, and attention to detail. Our butler training focuses on specific areas and skill sets to bring your butler to perfection with an emphasis on the fundamental characteristics that separate outstanding Butlers from good butlers.

As a London based company, we are proud to embody the British culture of excellence in service and our trainers travel around the world to bring this excellence to you, wherever you may be.

Principals & Managers

If you have a Butler in your employ that is not quite hitting the mark, a professional training session is often faster, less expensive, and more effective than firing and rehiring. Our Butler trainer will come to you, assess the needs of your staff, and provide a custom in-situ training.
