The Modern Butlers’ Journal, November 2021, Message from the Chairman

Steven FerryMessage from the Chairman

A meme recently caught my eye, as it is particularly germane to butlers caring for their employers and the property of their employers—just as much as it is to familial relationships, friendships, and vintage cars.

And with so much that is worrisome today, it helps to sit down with a cup of tea (or coffee) every now and then and remember these words:

Which brings us to a small announcement of modernization at the International Institute of Modern Butlers: We will be leaving behind the 20th Century idea of newsletters for communicating to members and readers, and instead, be switching to LinkedIn/social media. This issue, and the next one in December, will be the last ones, ending 16 years of constant coverage.

You will still see the same content, but through our LinkedIn portal, so if you are not already connected to The International Institute of Modern Butlers on LinkedIn, please do so.

The Institute is dedicated to raising service standards by broadly disseminating the mindset and superior service expertise of that time-honored, quintessential service provider, the British Butler, updated with modern people- skills, and adapted to the needs of modern employers and guests in staffed homes, luxury hotels, resorts, spas, retirement communities, jets, yachts & cruise ships around the world.
