ABOUT OUR SPEAKER:
Founder, Ms. Debi Pappas
White Glove Services, LLC, The American Butler School and www.ButlersOnCall.com
A seasoned corporate professional, Ms. Pappas spent the last 25 years working for Fortune 100 companies as Director of Finance, Corporate CFO, Deputy Program Manager and finally a Consultant. After spending three years in Iraq, she returned to the states and authored her first book entitled Selling to Uncle Sam – A Small Business Guide, followed by Don’t Bid! Insider secrets for small businesses to benefit from government spending. These books introduced small business owners to the concepts needed to land lucrative government contracts. As a result, in 2010 her hometown inducted her into the Hall of Fame for her business and corporate accomplishments.
Living overseas for over ten years whetted her appetite for superior personal services. Having Butlers in India, Thailand and Kuwait made her realize how important these service professionals were in the life of a busy executive or entrepreneur.
Travelling to Australia for Butler and House Manager training, her certification landed her a position in Costa Rica to manage construction and budgetary issues, a perfect blend of hospitality and management. Shortly thereafter she decided the availability of professional Butlers was a function that Central Florida badly needed and launched White Glove Services in 2009.
Butler Recruitment & Training
Recruiting other Butlers from around the globe, White Glove Services offers Butlers On Call, Private Placement of Butlers and Estate Managers, and training to existing staff in private homes or in the resort arena.
