Butler Academy on Expresso Morning Show – SABC 3

By Butler Academy



The South African Butler Academy had the pleasure of joining the Expresso Morning Show – SABC 3 on live television today!


“Movies and TV series like Downton Abbey and Remains of the Day portray the life of a butler for what is WAS… a humble existence below the stairs. Last week, however, a BBC report revealed that modern day butlers in Dubai easily earn one hundred thousand POUNDS annually — that’s nearly 1.6 million rand!

In comparison, the Royal family pay some of their butlers about 24 000 pounds or R375 000 a year. The Queen might not always get the pick of the crop, because the demand for butlers in exotic places, along with the salaries, are on the rise. The SA Butler Academy has trained 366 butlers in the last 5 years. What does a butler in South Africa earn? What can a modern day butler do for you? Can you afford one? ”


Thank you to our excellent hosts Expresso Morning Show – SABC 3
