Business of Butlers
I was so happy to hear this interview today with the Founders of DEMA. As someone who had been employed directly within, and now peripherally in the Private Staffing/Estate Management world, it is always a bit difficult to explain "exactly" what a job description is. This interview sheds some light as to the roles of modern day domestics.

Craig is joined by Mathew Haack and Michael Wright, who created the The Domestic Estate Managers Association five years ago, to fill the growing need to educate household employees on how to manage estates. Most people in the industry have zero education or formal training in the field of managing estates and usually fall into these kinds of jobs. The Domestic Estate Managers Association (DEMA) will begin a certification program program to allow members to develop skill in the world of private service professionals like nannies, butlers, estate managers, personal assistants, home managers and more.
