Butler Training course in China

Our head trainer recently completed a busy two week training course for the 12 House Management Staff in  Senior Executive Butlers in a 5 star Chinese hotel.  The Butler Training course in China  is designed to validate and improve current working practices in Chinese hotels. We look to train hotel and domestic staff in British etiquette and finishing school as well as make them aware and confident in British Butlering techniques. The Butler training is much appreciated by the Chinese teams and they feel that they had received a lot of new British Etiquette and Butler/Silver service knowledge and skills to their individual hotel or private teams.
