Who we are:

Our founder, Bradford Benn has been involved in Audio, Video, Control, and Lighting design and installation for over 25 years. His comprehensive range of projects stretches from conference rooms to stadiums and from hockey arenas to theme parks. Bradford’s roles in the industry have included integrator, manufacturer, and now end-user or owner’s representative. During the COVID pandemic, the professional audio world, as well as much of the rest of the world was bleak. Bradford decided it was time to start his own consultancy. It was something he had been wanting to do for a while, but there were always reasons not to.

This page contains brief biographies of the team. We have also posted our Business Beliefs to indicate how we are going to run this business. Please feel free to reach out and get in touch with us.

What we do:

It is very difficult to list every offering the Advisist Group has available. We are not saying, we can do everything. We are realizing that as the list of things we are knowledgeable about is long. In the past three decades of working in professional audio, video, and lighting we have had many roles. Bradford, our leader, has been a student, a teacher, an operator, a technical manager, a specifier, a designer, a fabricator and an installer.

To start the conversation, we have listed some of the services we offer on this page. We are expanding and developing the list so do not hesitate to ask if we can do something. Feel free to schedule a conversation with us.
