Join Canada's most famous butler, Charles MacPherson, for an afternoon keynote speech on the evolution of domestic service from the 19th century to present day. Formerly serving as Major Domo (Chief Butler) for one of Canada's most prominent families, Charles now prepares the next generation of Butlers, Household Managers, and Housekeepers for the modern-day demands of private service. This event is perfect for 'Downton Abbey' fans and those curious about the world of domestic service. A copy of Charles' national bestselling book, "The Butler Speaks" which retails for $24.95 is included with registration and Charles will be available to sign your book after his keynote speech.

Charles MacPherson is the founder and president of Charles MacPherson Associates (CMA) and The Charles MacPherson Academy, located in Toronto. CMA specializes in recruiting private service staff, as well as training and consulting for private residential and corporate clients worldwide. The Academy educates butlers, house managers, housekeepers, and other domestic staff for the modern day demands of private service. Charles has published three books: ‘The Butler Speaks’, ‘The Pocket Butler’, and 'The Pocket Butler's Guide to Travel'. You may have heard Charles on CBC radio speaking about butling, manners and etiquette. And for the past eight years, he has served as the ‘Resident Butler’ on The Marilyn Denis Show, a national daytime lifestyle series.
