Posted on: January 29th, 2014 by Butler Academy 7 Comments

Congratulations to Ricardo Frade,

 

Ricardo is one of our younger Butlers (19 years old) and he has shown extreme dedication right from the beginning of this course.  He always ensures that he has a good understanding of any instruction given to him, by repeating the instruction to ensure the best end result.  He has the true service heart and shows great potential to become an outstanding Butler.  Well done, Ricardo!

Butler Academy on “Smile FM 90.4”

Posted on: January 28th, 2014 by Butler Academy No Comments

The South African Butler Academy invited as guests at the studios of Smile FM 90.4

 

It was a great honour and pleasure to join the team of the Smile904FM Breakfast Show this morning to give an insight in the world of the South African Butler Academy.  We thank you, Eloise and Bobby, for the opportunity to be able to share some skills and techniques which forms an integral part in the life of a Butler.  Interestingly the visit of Smile904FM to RMS Queen Mary 2 brought back many fond memories to Newton, SABA’s Principal who also worked on this “Grand Dame” a few years ago.
