Butler Service Training China

Our Butler Service Training in China is world renowned and famous. We offer butler courses in Chinese and English.

The Butler Service Training China owner, Sara Vestin Rahmani, tells of her successes in Asia, the Middle East Africa, United States of America along with Europe.

“This is an exciting time for Bespoke Bureau & The British Butler Academy. We are now operating and offering luxury Butler Service Training China for hotels and for wealthy families. Also, The Luxury and bespoke Butler Service Course  is the first program in China to offer a dual language option,” said Ms Vestin Rahmani

Why train with us?

    Butler Service Training China

    Butler Service Training China – Sara Vestin Rahmani in China

Butler Service Training China – what is a Butler?

Butlers are leaders and managers, usually heading up a team of professionals, delivering a level of personalised service that exceeds the expectations of employers and guests. Skilfully training and developing other staff members the butler often presents himself as a ‘mini-manager’.

Mr Florentin, who has been involved in the development of Butler Service Training China says that this is by far the most comprehensive and well – organized program he has encountered.

“The standards within the program recognise the need to be meaningful, valuable and relevant, and are tailored to meet the specific needs of hospitality industry clients, individuals and different cultural groups,” said Florentin.

The British Butler Academy is the most famous operating butler training organization in the world.

Butler Service Training in ChinaButler Service Training China

Our head Butler trainers for China, translates their years of experience through a training program that is designed to offer individual modules which combine to create a package of skills which suit the needs of individual work situations.

We believe that a professional Chinese butler should be prompt, courteous, organised, well-groomed, honest, trustworthy, friendly but not familiar, reliable and an unobtrusive professional. A butler is committed to the highest standards of service, anticipates as well as expedites, organises as well as implements, and delegates effectively.

Butlers are very often the first and last point of contact for the employer and guest and this is seen as the best that can be offered, in fact, an ambassador of high standards. Now China can share more effectively in this philosophy with the program notes and presentations translated into Chinese and/or with sub-titles.

Sara Vestin Rahmani says that being the ambassador of this Butler Service Training in China operation carries great responsibility and respect. A Butler must be a consummate professional with impeccable personal standards, attention to detail and the ability to anticipate the needs of employers and guests.

No! Usually cruise liners have hundreds of crew members.A super yacht there will generally be a ratio of one crew member to one guest. You have direct interaction with the guests.

What do I do when I have completed the course?

Once you have completed the training super yachts course with us, you will be well equipped to join the super yacht industry. During the training super yachts course you will meet  many other prospective crew members. Usually the trainees of each course make plans to go loo for work together. Or we will place you in jobs before you leave.

This sounds too good to be true. 

Working on board a super yacht is an amazing experience. It is a great opportunity to travel the world whilst earning a fantastic salary. Although it can be glamorous, a lot of the time it is not. You will be working for very long hours, often with no breaks. A lot  of the time you work for weeks with no days off. So yes, you earn a great salary but work hard.
