The Most Important Part of Your Daily Life is to delegate…
Time is your most precious resource…
And your to-do list disappear with a dedicated concierge service, which saves your time to do other more important things, and gives privileged access to private events that money can’t buy.
A luxury concierge is your perfect companion. It’s your secret weapon to unlock a world of exclusive experiences and VIP events.
The word concierge probably comes from the old French word “comte des cierges.” The comte des cierges was a servant responsible for maintaining the lighting and cleanliness of medieval palaces.
Today’s concierge services extend far beyond just maintaining your candles lit. Concierges are highly skilled people who can add real value to your life by taking care of some essential and time-consuming tasks for you. They also have an extensive network to help you get VIP access to some of the most ultra-exclusive events and experiences around the world.
In general, you’ll find two categories of concierge services:
- Personal concierge services: if you want to hire the services of a concierge for yourself.
- Corporate concierge services: if a company wants to provide concierge services to its employees as an extra benefit.
Three main reasons to subscribe to a luxury concierge service:
- To save time
- To get exclusive access to private events thanks to the concierge’s network
- To outsource time-consuming and repetitive tasks
Choose the level of support that you want…
Membership packages are the traditional form of concierge support. You pay a monthly or yearly fee to be part of the concierge program. In exchange, you get 24/7 support from your concierge who will, over time, get to know you and anticipate your needs.
On-demand concierge services are a new kind of experiences where you pay as you go. It’s more transactional and focused on getting particular tasks done on a more ad-hoc basis.
