    We have had our first breakfast service and it was amazing and overwhelming at the same time. It was fantastic to see all the students learning how to communicate with each others as servers and kitchen staff. Hoping to see even greater progress as the course drives us towards our absolute best.

    Since arriving at the SABA International Butler Academy, I have learned a tremendous amount of fine details that not many would consider when deep in their work. My hopes are the by the time the course is completed I would have mastered the subtle nuances that would make me the best butler I could be.

  22. andrew says:

    Very relaxing day filled with ‘spa day’ which involved a lesson on taking care of your nails from a very charming somatologist and an energy-filled afternoon with zumba class. Could not ask for a better way of entering a start-of-a-half-way-week week knowing where each of the students are sitting as a professional butler status as of now.

  23. Johannes says:

    I had some time to think about what actually this course means and what door’s this will open up for me and will open to anyone how will do this course in the future. Just do it out of passion and do it because you want to do it and be the best you can be.

  24. Johannes says:

    I had some time two think and realized that this course will open doors to me and anyone that you can’t think of just do this with passion and be your self and be the best you can be.

  25. Ruan says:

    What an exciting third week it has been!!from doing our second buffet style breakfast service to learning how to take care of our hands and nails on a spa day and working out all the spent up energy and excitement in my first ZUMBA class…

    So so happy I am here!

    Today was spectacular, relaxed yet informative. We had the opportunity to say Bon Voyage to two of our trainers who have jetted off to France this evening for some international training. We look forward to their return and for them to share the experience with us.
