The Perfect Hotel Butler




Well I don't know very much about this commercial and when or where it played, but I think it is just wonderful, and had I known about it sooner, I would have posted it. What I love is how the director was able to correctly translate the impeccable qualities of a professional Butler. In fact I love this short movie so much, I am going to use it in my training, to help teach Butlers how a professional Butler is in every space and always available, but yet never the centre of attention. It's really hard to teach the difference from hospitality vs. Butlering and subtle differences.

Please watch the movie, and let me know what you think, all comments good or bad are welcome!
