    We're joined by Gabi Hughes, a home technology integrator and CEDIA member who started out as a qualified electrician, and Andrew Royall from CEDIA member company, Eclectic Home Technology.

It’s the business!

We’re lucky to have someone as knowledgeable and experienced as Jeff and his team, making a podcast that’s laser focussed on an industry that I love. Great conversations between interesting and well respected guests, with lots of emphasis on the business of CI - which is unusual but hugely welcome. And all beautifully produced to boot! Well done Jeff :-)
