Manager Tips from Butler
• You have to genuinely like people and understand different personalities. It has to bring you joy to watch other people enjoy themselves.
• The travel director is as important as the destination: We are the bank. Take advantage of the travel time to build relationships and trust.
• Take care of the nuts and bolts: Have back-up identifications for everyone, have extra medications, and make sure all are safe and sound.
