The International Institute of Modern Butlers
Welcome to the International Institute of Modern Butlers, now in its second decade of operation.
We championed the concept of the Modern Butler at a time when it was considered iconoclastic (strongly countering accepted traditions), but events have marched on and proven that there is indeed a strong demand internationally for the strengths of the old-fashioned English butler combined with the technological and other skills required to operate effectively in the international community of the 21st Century.
Over the years, we have brought new services into being at hotels and resorts, defining and redefining what is a hospitality butler, in addition to introducing butler-style service and standards to other industries where the focus is on providing high levels of service.
In the same way, the Institute is now pioneering the creation of individuals who can bring about a greater zest for life, no matter how incremental, both in the people they serve and in themselves.
If you would like to enquire about our consulting or training services, may we be so bold as to say that we believe five-star standards are best served by five-star training—which does not mean exorbitant rates, but it does mean that when we consult and train, the aim is to put in the necessary elbow grease and know-how to bring about well-trained butlers who are suitably empowered and a credit to their employers. We are happy to participate in projects where this is the understanding and goal.
Please enjoy what the web site has to offer—it is an informational portal more than a sophisticated work of digital art, for which we make no apologies, but rest assured, plans are afoot for a more elegant experience.
