INHOUS Q&A with Maytum & Clark Lifestyle | 12 April 2024

By Sylvie Harris, Polly Clark & Georgia Maytum


How did Maytum & Clark Lifestyle begin? 

Maytum & Clark Lifestyle originated from a shared time at Harrods, where we collectively led the ‘Beyond Lifestyle’ team for a cumulative 15 years. This experience gave us a profound insight into the desires and expectations of High Net Worth (HNW) and Ultra High Net Worth (UHNW) clientele, shaping our commitment to delivering unparalleled service and exceeding client expectations.

What is something that makes Maytum & Clark unique and different to other companies offering Concierge services? 

Maytum & Clark stands out in the realm of concierge services due to our boutique size – comprising only two individuals. This unique characteristic enables us to provide an exceptionally personalised service. While our scale may not align with every client’s needs, many appreciate the intimate nature of our operation. Our small team allows us to forge genuine connections with our clients, understanding their preferences, likes, and dislikes on a deeper level. Consequently, we curate bespoke experiences and events tailored precisely to their individual tastes, ensuring an unparalleled level of satisfaction and engagement.

How has the business evolved since you began? 

Whilst we were initially focused solely on serving private clients and their families, our portfolio has expanded to include a select group of esteemed corporate clients from a number of industries such as finance, property and tech. This transition has broadened our scope of services, allowing us to cater to a diverse range of requests on a consistent basis.

Moreover, we have ventured into corporate gifting; crafting innovative and thoughtful gift ideas for both clients and employees, which has become a cornerstone of our service offerings.

What is your typical profile of a client? 

At Maytum & Clark Lifestyle, we pride ourselves on catering to a diverse array of clients, with no typical profile to speak of. Our clientele spans various nationalities, age groups, and interests, reflecting the rich tapestry of individuals we serve. What unites them is their shared desire for a comprehensive family-wide concierge service.

Our most valued clients are often extended families who leverage our services collectively as well as individually. We offer a holistic “360 lifestyle” service tailored to the entire family unit, while also attending to the unique needs and preferences of each individual member.

Have you noticed any specific requests/requirements lately? 

Lately, we’ve observed a surge in requests for Taylor Swift concert tickets, indicating a notable fanbase among our clientele, affectionately dubbed “Swifties.”

Additionally, there’s been a growing trend towards bespoke travel experiences. Clients are seeking meticulously crafted itineraries tailored to their specific desires, often venturing beyond conventional offerings. For instance, we orchestrated a bespoke whisky tour in the Scottish Highlands for one family, while another client embarked on a lavish two-week gastronomic odyssey via private jet, exploring six culinary hotspots around the globe.

What is the most unusual request you have had from a client? 

One particularly memorable request came from a client whose daughter had an unusual craving before her upcoming flight home. She tasked us with sourcing and delivering precisely 30 packets of orange-flavoured Haribo gummy bears, with strict instructions that no other colors were permissible. Despite its whimsical nature, we approached the task with our signature dedication to fulfilling even the most unique requests, ensuring that her inflight snacks were precisely tailored to her preferences.

How has recent economic head waves affected what you do or your business? 

With companies tightening their belts and implementing cuts in hospitality and budgets, we’ve observed a decrease in corporate events such as away days and client entertainment. This shift has prompted us to adapt our strategies and offerings to better align with the evolving needs and constraints of our corporate clients. Despite these challenges, we remain committed to providing unparalleled service and support to our clientele, navigating through economic headwinds with resilience and creativity.

What’s on the horizon for Maytum & Clark?

As we look ahead, we’re eagerly anticipating the vibrant British Social summer season, which promises a plethora of exciting events for our clients to enjoy. From the prestigious Ascot races and the electrifying British Grand Prix to the iconic Wimbledon championships and the illustrious Henley Royal Regatta, there’s no shortage of prestigious gatherings to partake in.

Moreover, this summer boasts an impressive line up of performances by renowned artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift, and Robbie Williams. Many of our clients flock to London during the summer months, drawn by the allure of these world-class events and entertainment offerings. It’s a time of year that we relish, as we delight in curating unforgettable experiences and ensuring that the whole family is thoroughly entertained throughout the season.
