Starkey’s patented Service Management Systems Course is a 40-hour or five-day Certification course onsite at The Starkey Mansion. This program highlights Starkey’s systematic process for writing and customizing a Service Management Plan for a private home.
Housekeeping is to Household Management as bookkeeping is to accounting. If you don’t know it, you can’t really supervise Housekeepers or train them. It’s an integral part of a Household Manager’s knowledge. Starkey International is offering a 40-hour (five-day) course for Household Managers to come out knowing what fine housekeeping means. This is a highly detailed curriculum in overall Housekeeping Management skills and knowledge.
The Art of Entertaining Course is back! We will be covering Table Settings, Table Service Styles, Champagne Service and Formal Dinner planning all from the perspective of the Emily Post tradition. If one knows the traditional art, one can always alter or fine-tune to fit the requests of your Principal. Starkey will present its famous “Entertainment Event Planner” and practice the Order of Service. We will also cover care of fine China, Silver and Crystal, basic flower arrangements, proper use of candles and menu development. We will end the course with an actual formal dinner.
This program highlights Starkey’s process of successful placement. We teach you how to master the best ways to present yourself to a potential employer. Included in this course are the following: how to identify the skills and strengths you are actually bringing to a potential employer; how to present yourself as a truly good fit for the position; how to determine if the position is the right fit for you; what you might expect in terms of salary range; and what steps you might expect as you move through the interviewing process.
