Butler Training Mustique Island – The Butler leads

Our amazing head trainer Andrew has a life time’s experience in personal service excellence.  Nobody is better equipped than him to teach other butlers to excel. That is why we sent him on this fine mission to the tropics. Andrew taught the butler students about the butler’s responsibility to understand the guests needs. To be in charge of making sure they are kept happy at all times. This can be a tall order and requires utmost confidence, patience, training and excellence. The Butler Training Mustique Island with Andrew delivered an outstanding advanced course that made the team the world’s Elite butlers.

We cannot stress the importance of Emotionally Intelligent and Spirited Staff. To get a perfect service team you need staff with training, understanding and common sense. All service staff must have emotional intelligence. This means intuitive people sense, empathy, and genuineness. We helped the butler team on the Island to gain the confidence and understanding of this.
