Virtual Butler Training Student References


Dear Mr. Cross, West and the entire SABA team.

I want to thank you for the Amazing training that I have had the privilege of attending via your Amazing Virtual Butler School..

Under your tutelage I have broadened my horizons in so many aspects and you have equipped me with the Tools that will help me to be the best in my field. From the Correct way to greet someone down to the finest details in how to set up and host a 5 course food and wine pairing for my guests.

I would recommend SABA training for anyone whom wants to become a perfect Gentleman, man or woman. The training changes your way of thinking and actually makes you think twice before you act in what the best way would be as to not give the guest good service, but to give the guests Exceptional service

Thank you for this amazing life altering experience and hopefully the next time we meet it will not be in virtuality but in reality.

Warm Regards

Dear SABA,

I am writing to express my gratitude to SABA in the manner of sharing my reasons in choosing the SABA Online Virtual classes with future potential students.

If I may start with your kind understanding that SABA is not just a learning institution, SABA is a family. A family of beautiful souls who have had years of experience in the finer industry, and who sincerely want to see you succeed. A family committed to personally helping you to reach your personalised tailored goal. The moment I was privileged to speak to Mr Braam West, I believed that whomever would be under SABA’s wing is fated for success.

I feel safe with SABA, knowing that I have the guidance, training and back up support not only during training, but during my new projects. SABA solemnly pledges to help you along your way in specific areas that you may require more understanding in. Even if these specific areas are not part of the virtual course, but if it is related to areas as part of functional duty (as pre-discussed or verified when discussing course benefits / outcomes), then you are under this family’s wing in certainty. I believe SABA delivers their promises.

I chose SABA with a heartfelt feeling of surety of trust in their sincere commitment of the latter, SABA’s pristine professionalism that was impressively noted, and the sweetest feeling of family to guide you in your excellence was the ultimate comforting factor.

Thank you so much Mr Braam West , for your personal time, truly heartfelt commitment in each of your SABA family members , kind compassion and tactful, observing leading skills. The delightful adventure of meeting Mr Newton Cross as classes grew closer was indeed a privilege, with Mr Crosse’s passionate commitment and so much attention to the finer detail in each and everyone of us too. Thank you so much Mr Newton Cross.

Thank you to all of the SABA team working behind the scenes in mysterious ways to achieve one shared ultimate goal of excellence. Thank you Ms Jill Hunter, Mr Adriaan Coetzer for your kind care in the team commitment felt so strongly. Even behind the scenes, the distict SABA energy prevailed.
May SABA prosper beyond limitation as always, in its honour and grace.

Yours sincerely,
Rehana G

To SABA and my fellow students,

Thank you so much for an incredible ten days! 🤗

I must admit that I felt very shy joining, but I have learnt so much not only from Mr Cross and Mr West, but from you, my friends, as well ☺️ Thank you all for being so selfless with your experiences and knowledge. As someone young with lots to learn (although one can never stop learning), I am extremely grateful for the opportunity.

May all of our journeys be fruitful and full of laughter!

Please feel free to reach out to me via social media should you wish to connect 🤗

With love,
