Our Story - Source Training

Welcome to Source

Hi, I’m Sheila, ex-stewardess and founder of two successful businesses: EYS (Environmental Yacht Services), which supplies eco-friendly products to the yachting community across the world, and Source.

From my many years working as a stewardess and working closely with the community through EYS, I noticed a huge knowledge gap when it came to basic stewardessing skills.

Stewardesses, and others working in luxury housekeeping, have to learn on the job. Not only that, but they must learn quickly and without any mistakes. Make a mistake and it could cost you your job. Often these mistakes are silly errors that with the right training, wouldn’t have happened.

I wanted to change this process and make it easier and more accessible for aspiring individuals to upskill before they start their career, or to boost confidence whilst in a career.

So I created Source.

Source is a series of online training courses specially designed by experts to upskill anyone wanting to enjoy a successful career in luxury housekeeping.
