Bespoke Tailored Butler/Hospitality Training


Bespoke Tailored Butler/Hospitality Training

The Exclusive Butler School Trainers have the availability to travel worldwide and deliver specially tailored training programmes wherever necessary. Our Trainers have experience working abroad and all maintain a traditional British Butler style which can bring an element of sophistication to the delivery of your service.

The Exclusive Butler School will always go out of their way to deliver a training programme to suit your required needs.  Should it be needed, we offer a consultation session in order to ascertain your needs, or areas of service that may need improvement, to ensure your staff receive the best possible training programme.  The mix of experience our Butler Trainers possess means that no matter where you are or what you need, you will receive a programme to your satisfaction.

Once a Training Module has been delivered, we can produce a manual/report to be used as a reference guide.

We have both male and female Butler Trainers available depending on your needs.

Our courses are taught in English but should you wish your course to be delivered in another language, our Trainers are happy to work alongside an Interpreter.

Any bespoke training and consultancy on Superyachts worldwide is carried out in partnership with the Maritime Skills Academy.
