The Art of Service

The International Butler Academy (TIBA) is a unique, exclusive and professional butling and house management school. In this ancient monastery every year a few dozens of students live, work and learn in a real, multi-million-dollar household to be graduated as the finest buttlers in the True Art of Service for the world's wealthiest families

  Most of them are young, come from three different continents and have paid 14,000 euros for spending two months to learn the true art of serving under the strict discipline of the director Mr. Wennekes. He says to them : “Make no mistake, success is not a guarantee.  Success requires motivation, dedication, devotion and the ability to combine energy, passion and commitment. You must be willing to put another person's wishes before your own, and do so with a genuine wish to be of service.”
