Dear prospective student, it was graduation day, March 6, 2009, and my fellow students and I were enjoying an evening in the most beautiful of surroundings. The night was filled with camaraderie, laughter, tears of joy, and most of all, memories. Our instructors gathered to stand before the audience to extol the virtues of each student presented there before them. As we listened to the words spoken on behalf of our friends; our colleagues; we swelled with a sense of pride and accomplishment for each other.
Certainly, one selects The International Butler Academy because of a passion for service. The excellent curriculum and the outstanding instructors, beckon students, from all walks of life, from everywhere in the world. But, what you cannot imagine, during a training program, is the opportunity to develop relationships that will guide you; transform you for the rest of your life. The friendships evolved, not only between students but with instructors, will sustain a lifetime. Something not easily achieved in a prevalent, here today, gone tomorrow, society.
That graduation night, when we recounted the valuable lessons we learned at The International Butler Academy, the countless, wondrous, field trips we traveled to, and how we were able to use our new found skills in the exciting events held during the program, it was clear that the memories we were leaving with were many. But, really, only the beginning of the memories we will have as friends and colleagues. I truly thank The International Butler Academy for affording students the opportunity to grow as professionals, together. We couldn’t have done it without the TIBA team. We are professional butlers with fond friendships and memories. In the end, TIBA served us.
Sincerely, Lynn Jackson - USA
Graduate of The International Butler Academy - March 2009
