There are 3 distinctive style of luxury that can be summed up as: Iconic, experiential and Intellectual. Although distinct, all three have a converging point that we call “Luxury Attitude". People working in the luxury lifestyle business should have a unique mindset of pleasing, pampering, providing unique and memorable experiences to the “customers”.

Brands in the luxury industry stand for sophistication and prestige; all the employees contribute to deliver this idea of the brand to the world. Employees are your best ambassadors. In order to fulfill this role, they should know their clients’ lifestyle and feel at their ease in all situations.

It’s important they know how to behave in business situations, especially during social events like business dinners.
