The International Butler Training Institute from Heloma.nl, is a unique, exclusive and high qualify hospitality and butler training institute, with students coming from all over the world. We pride ourselves in being the only "one on one" butler training program of its kind in the world. We are proud that we trained several famous Private houses. Mr. Greveling also trained resort and hotel staff with our, "Learning by doing" program.
The Int. Butler Training Institute from Heloma.nl was founded in 2009 by our executive director Mr.Cornelis Greveling.
Mr. Greveling was born in the Netherlands and has more than 20 years experience as a professional Butler and Butler Trainer. He graduated at The International Butler Academy (TIBA) in The Netherlands where he worked as Head Butler and Senior Instructor of the faculty. His career ranges from working for various private families and corporate clients to hotels and resorts. Over the years, he has invested time and energy making the butler profession his passion, particularly when it comes to personalized service. He works worldwide with professionals in the industry to achieve the highest level of expertise by combining education and practical experiences.
Throughout his career, Mr. Greveling realized that a lot of employees missed the practical experience. That is why Mr. Greveling started his own International Butler Training Institute, based on his philosophy, ‘learning by doing’.
Our training programs, The Junior Butler and the Head butler training are based on our own experience and expertise; we work with our own household handbook that is specially written for our students. During the intensive training program, at The International Butler Training Institute we will address the topics in this household handbook. However, our philosophy is ‘Learning by doing’, so we will also give you the opportunity to write your own household handbook. We will provide you with handouts, which you will use to complete your own household handbook.
