Bespoke Bureau – Copyright Fraud @Bespokebureau

Posted on: July 27th, 2013 by Admin 16 Comments

Less than a year since this article, the same happened again. Once a thief, always a thief! See below link.

 

http://www.thebutlerschool.com/international/copyright-fraud-bespoke-bureau-the-british-butler-association-sara-vestin-rhamani-bespokebureau/

 

And once again we prove to be a leader in Butler Training. Our photos are copied once again for the 3rd time by different Companies. This time by a London based Butler Training institute, called Bespoke Bureau.

 

If only they (Sara Vestin Rahmani) do what they preach: “We pride ourselves on our integrity, stability…” this would not happen. It is a pity that companies project to be a leader in their field, but have to leech on other successful companies

 

Another feather in our caps, for being unique, different and a leader in Butler Training!

 

After a request to remove the photos (before publishing the post), the owner / author (Sara) blamed two interns responsible for BB’s marketing & advertising. Easy to pass the buck instead of rectifying the situation. Butler’s Tip of the day: “Apologise, rectify & never justify!”

After we found another article from BB and another stolen picture from us on azureazure.com she replied with:

 

Bespoke Bureau: “Thanks for your email but FYI we have nothing to do with http://www.azureazure.com/homes/butler-academy-in-london-47 so you must contact them, not us

 

Kind Regards,

Sara Vestin
Director of Bespoke Bureau, Peek-a-boo & Cupcakes”

Butler Training – Silver Service

Butler Training – Butler Service

 

Do you know how to remove the skin from “Salmon Fillet”? You simply use a fish fork and insert it into the skin and roll backwards. Remember “Silver Service” from the left hand side.

HOTEL BUTLER TRAINING – FANCOURT GEORGE – FEEDBACK

 

Dear South African Butler Academy Team – Mr. Newton Cross & Braam West, Warmest greetings from The Manor House at Fancourt.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Mr. Cross and Mr. West for being our Mentors over the last eight days.

 

We truly appreciate their passion, dedication, motivation, kindness and considerable patience to our Fancourt Team. We feel very privileged to have had this incredible time to learn and be nurtured under their guidance. The South African Butler Academy is most definitely the “finest” Butler School in the World.  Your dedication to perfection and 24hr Ambition is admirable.

 

As a Team Leader myself, I feel very passionately about excellent service and creating the WOW factor for our guests when staying at the Manor House. With the guidance of SABA I believe that I will now be able to lead my team into creating an even more exceptional hotel experience with  high maintainable standards.

 

I look forward to sharing my new found knowledge with my colleagues and ensuring that Team Fancourt strives to:

Create Memories and Exceed Expectations, Every day, In Everything We Do!

 

Yours in Service Excellence,

 

Roxanne 

The Manor House Operations Manager

Butler Training – Hotel Butler Training Interview

Posted on: July 21st, 2013 by Butler Academy No Comments

Butler Training Interview

 

Interview with Mr. Cross our Principal and Chief Butler Trainer at Fancourt George who is training the Butler Department for Manor House. Mr. West our Student Councilor and Class Guardian is conducting the Interview.

 

The Hotel Butler is a person who works within the Rooms Division or Food and Beverage department. The ideal candidate is trained in all aspects of “world knowledge” and Standard operational procedures for the Butler Department.

 

The Butler Academy is successful in training Butlers world-wide in Butler Departments or Establishing new Butler Departments. This is our 4th time at Fancourt George which is a well known Golf Resort.

 

Mr. Cross “started” his wonderful career at Fancourt as a Butler working for well known Mr. Nelson Mandela during the Presidents Cup in 2003.  We recently celebrated Mr. Mandela`s birthday at Fancourt on the 19th of July 2013.

Butler Service |  Butler Training | British Butler Training | Butler Academy Moments last forever

 

The South African Butler Academy is set for a ‘world class’ Hotel Butler Training Program at Fancourt Golf Resort in George. The Butler Academy delivers a service which is unknown in South Africa. Our passion and experiential training skills is a must for any 5 star establishment. We know service, we understand the Hotel Culture and deliver the “wow” factor.

 

Butler Service is a true art form one to adapt to! We want you to “feel it in your bones”, and have service become an integral part of your life and part of your being.  Service means; to answer the needs of, and to provide assistance that benefits or helps others.

 

What is the difference between the services offered by a Hotel Butler and those provided by any of the other positions mentioned above?

 

The Hotel Butler is responsible for building a ‘Guest Profile’ for each guest that he/she offers a service to. He / She would obtain  information before the guest  arrives at the hotel or Resort. This would make it possible for the Butler to know the guest better, and to be able to anticipate what the guests’ needs may be during their stay.

 

During their stay, the Butler is required to build a guest profile as he comes into contact with them and their immediate environments preferable during requests or services offered. This also enables the Butler to predict any future services that would benefit the guest in terms of their well-being and overall satisfaction as well as creating the ideal environment.

 

The Butler Academy creates an unforgettable moment – next up Fancourt George! 

 

 

The Fancourt Hotel is a fine blend of modern luxury and classic elegance which offers accommodation that caters to every taste.  115 luxurious bedrooms and suites are all fully equipped with everything you need to make your stay as comfortable and unforgettable as possible.  www.fancourt.co.za
