Concierge Service – Butler Training

By Butler Academy

Butler as a concierge


A personal concierge service runs on the most basic of premises. People want things done but don’t have the time to do them. But they’re happy to pay someone to take care of their business efficiently and with a touch of class. Why not let that someone be you?



Although personal concierge services are a fairly recent development, the number of companies that serve time-starved clients is mushrooming, right along with customer demand for such businesses.

A list of some duties may include:

  • Airline reservations
  • Booking Travel
  • Catering coordination
  • Dry cleaning pickup
  • Gift wrapping
  • Grocery shopping
  • Office assistance
  • Organisation services
  • Personal Shopping
  • Private Jet reservations


Use your imagination and artistic skills that come naturally to you. Not only will you stand out ” WOW FACTOR”  and be invaluable to your client, you will also find yourself beginning to 
undertake tasks and services you might never have considered in the 
past, as well as seeking out opportunities to impress your principle.

    Yesterday it was just a whole different day. Full of amazing experiences! What really took my breath away was the concierge service which l had to plan from Cape Town to California in a PowerPoint and present it (sell it) to the judges. After that we matched wine with chocolates…

    l truly loved yesterday and l will always remember it because now l even know how to plan my destinations

    Good day everyone,

    Today at the Butler Academy we were learnt about very important and intresting things. We were learning more about the technology the latest one and the new one. It was very interesting and I have learnt so many things.

    I thank you very much to MR Cross (principal) and the management of SABA to let us know about those important things.


    Thank you so much Mr. Cross for taking us to concierge service. Now I know what is all about and I can plan a trip for my Mr. King to Paris with concierge service.
