The mission of Les Clefs d’Or states “concierges are motivated by a genuine desire to serve. They are prudent, patient, kind toward guests and staff alike, self-confident, tenacious, persistent, adaptable, ingenious, disciplined, and flexible.”
The BC Les Clefs d’Or is an organization that represents Hotel Concierges. “We facilitate the exchange of ideas between Members. We work together to better serve our valued hotel guests. Our Motto: “In Service through Friendship.”
As British Columbia and Vancouver become top international tourist destinations, the people that meet and greet those tourists are crucial to the long term success of the industry. People remember great service because they know they enjoyed the experience.
By the end of this year, Dreams Take Flight will have taken more than 25,000 children to the happiest place on earth – Disneyland. There they experience the wonder of friendship and magic. Our goal is to help them forget their troubles for one incredible day and to provide them with a lifetime of memories.
