Keep up a study Schedule

Posted on: January 7th, 2016 by Butler Academy No Comments

At SABA, we understand how difficult it can be to work and keep up a good study schedule. There are so many things each of us needs to do in a day and it’s easy to forget and run out of time. By making use of lists, it becomes an easy and convenient way to track your progress and cross items off your list when you have completed the task. Yes we know, filing is boring – but you probably have no idea how much time it saves in the long run.

Posted on: January 7th, 2016 by Butler Academy 1 Comment

The South African Butler Academy will be off to Maldives Olhuveli Beach & Spa Resort. Exciting International  Bespoke 7-star Resort Butler Training program awaits. This will be our 7th time to the Maldives covering our unique signature Butler training program.

 

The Butler is more than just an extra pair of arms and legs. The Butler commits himself/herself to the guest and cares to exceed their expectations and create extra- special moments.

Exceptional service is only the starting point; we organise the guest’s stay in an excellent way. Guest must spend their time in the resort as comfortable and as pleasurable as possible. A professional Butler pays special attention to all detail.

The Butler is an excellent organiser and knows, and follows, the accepted manners and customs, adhering to the right Etiquette and Protocol. The Butler is always in the background, smoothing things over and is firm about the amount and quality of work done by those assisting him/her to provide a first class service to the guest. At the end of the day, an exceptional Butler must have the energy and humility to ask, “Was there anything else I could have improved on with my service today?”

 

This is us, unique, aspiring and effective!
