Toastmaster Lawrence

Toastmaster Lawrence is a military man, serving his country and seeing action in Northern Ireland and The Falklands. After seeing action he decided to pursue a position as The Commanding Officers Batman. A military style Butler, a position he thoroughly enjoyed, training at The Household Cavalry Barracks London, recieving the best training in the world.






When he left The Army he decided to learn about the high end of hospitality and worked at various fine dining restaurants throughout the country.

The call came from Cliveden House Taplow, starting off in the dining room, then being asked to look after Spring cottage, Queen Victoria's Tea Room. He wasn't just serving tea there, Lawrence was back to his true love, being a butler.
He was then approached by Claridges Hotel to run the Two Penthouse Suites as Head Butler.

Whilst there he was asked by one of his guests if he would like to join them and be their butler, a challenge he couldn't refuse.

Having had a fantastic, travelled illustrious career as a Butler for many years, having looked after Captain's of Industry, Lawrence had his sights set on the ultimate; looking after The Royal Family. This he did on not one but two occasions, at St James's Palace and Royal Ascot.
He thought that he had reached his height when he was asked to look after The Saudi Royal family, to be precise Prince Turki, second son of the King of Saudi Arabia.

Then last Christmas he was whisked away to look after the Saudi Royal Family again, this time at the Beast DJ music festival.

Last year Lawrence decided to re-train as a Professional Toastmaster, he had reached the heights he wanted as a Professional Butler.






Lawrence has worked with us at Hillersdon in very demanding circumstances and always executed his work with the utmost professionalism and good humour.

A very hard worker, Lawrence has exacting standards and a strong work ethic, always “going the extra mile” to make sure that those he serves never lack for anything and receive a “seemless service".

Lawrence quickly became a valued member of our butler team working in VIP areas at events, including Royal Ascot, Cheltenham Festival and Wimbledon Tennis Championships. ln addition, Lawrence has worked on numerous private household assignments ranging from cocktail receptions to dinner parties as well as longer term assignments.

Lawrence is reliable, hardworking and discreet making him an invaluable member of our butler team. We recommend him very highly and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
