Coordination with You
Friendly and Mutual
Being instinctively protective, the senior concierge's support for each client is personally ingrained. There is no way to be deeply and creatively thoughtful, to personally sacrificial extents, without having steadfast care. When you see us offering our kindness, you are receiving genuine expressions of friendship. Financial motivations could not motivate us sufficiently to have absolute and permanent loyalty. We truly feel each client is a personal, lifelong friend. Even if all compensated services ended a decade ago, we would still be delighted to hear from an old friend, and happy to be helpful in any possible way.
Like Christmas and Hanukkah becoming a "holiday shopping season," the consumer realm has transformed a soul-level sanctity into superficiality that does not extend past barriers of pleasantries, political correctness, and—as exemplified by the eroding slogans of a holiday designated to celebrate the Birth of Jesus—legally self-protective. Many civilians are able to spend most of their lives in states of convenience, reasonably following uniform commercial codes, without being responsible for navigating self-conflicting ambiguities that affect large numbers of lives and livelihoods. Therefore, for the benefit of those who are relatively new to the intensities of internationally prominent leadership, private equity, and foreign relations, we need to clarify that we are not referencing some kind of a "hotel loyalty program" that issues pretty membership cards.
Loyalty, to anyone who has earnestly avowed to an oath—and has upheld that oath regardless of risks to one's life or livelihood—would be disheartened to be confused with a membership ID quantified by points that expire after eighteen months. No, loyalty to us has no relevance to how often you patronize our services.
Reciprocating the concept that duty-of-honor loyalty is not an oscillating variable based on frequency of transactions, loyalty from us is not expressed with consumer-style subservience and elegant service rituals. To the contrary, the tradecraft of counterintelligence and the operations of HVI security are awkward, inconvenient, and must be accepted with flexibility. For example, merely the hospitality aspect of our Enduring Executive service is structured for staffing by retired parajumpers. (Parajumpers are the epitome of self-endangering, fast-lifesaving heroes—a spec-ops extreme version of paramedics. In addition to entering battle theaters, contracted retirees are an important resource for foreign paramilitary operations, without referencing or carrying their official US identification: they must trespass and commit severely punishable crimes to hot exfil and then to cas-evac US field officers and contractors.) That kind of whatever-it-takes, unflinchingly loyal duty is in sharp contrast to the "I'm-not-comfortable-with-that" attitudes of most non-physician, non-military healthcare workers. A parajumper's dedication is at the hero level of loyalty, but don't expect him to fluff your pillows. We have other workers for that. If you want aimless subservience, any ordinary five-star hotel will fluff your ego, but that's not the type of dutifully loyal protector who would deftly assert black-bag tradecraft in swiftly evading a high-value individual from surprise duress. Your concierge is your professional handler with countersurveillance expertise and executive business sophistication. This is a realm of temerity far more personal and sophisticated than the diminutive politeness of paid hospitality.
Loyalty is a personal duty of honor. A hero in a hospital bed knows that a chaplain is faithfully protective of the soldier's embattled soul and legacy, completely disconnected from how often—if ever—that soldier had attended any of the Padre's field chapels. Conversely, the chaplain does not withhold his accessibility to this continuously lifelong patriot. For example, if the chaplain were ever to be off-book in-country for the exfil of a captured officer, the chaplain would know that he could depend on the operative's spec-ops skills to be faithfully protective. (Some wonder whether sometimes hypothetical examples are not hypothetical. Please click here for a powerful article by a chaplain.)
