Heneveld has often been ahead of her time – in college she earned her varsity letter the first year woman were allowed to. She received her MBA at the University of Michigan when only 12% of the class was female. Now, her early entry in the 1980’s into the home automation business has given her the knowledge and experience today to be an internationally recognized industry expert.
She founded TALI - a nationally recognized company in integrated home electronics in 1989. TALI focused entirely on home automation offering fully integrated systems including: communications wiring, phone/intercom, multi-room audio, home theatre, lighting control, security, overall control systems and surge protection. TALI emerged as an industry leader offering a single-source/full-service team dedicated to wiring for the future and providing homeowners easy to use systems.
In 1997 Heneveld sold TALI and has been busy ever since sharing her vast industry knowledge through videos and training as a partner in The Training Dept, Inc. They are the recognized leader for the very best training, materials, and videos to educate both installers and consumers about the emerging technologies impacting our lives. In addition, Heneveld consults with manufacturers, installation companies, and consumers helping them with strategic planning, business management, education, and design and management in integrated residential electronics.
Heneveld is often asked to speak at national conferences on the future of home systems. She has presented at: CEDIA events – Regional Training, EXPO – US and International; Parks FORUM; CES; ISC; NEOCON; CABA; CANASA; NSCA; NAHB and Custom Builder Symposium. In addition Heneveld has written for and been published in numerous magazines. She has served on the Board of Directors of CEDIA and served several years as chair of the CEDIA Systems Integration Council, leading the effort for industry standardization of symbology. Her dedication to sharing her knowledge continues with a published quick reference - Residential Technology Terms and Definition.
Heneveld holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in Education and an MBA in marketing and computers, all from the University of Michigan. Her prior successful business ownership and experience in management and computer consulting prepared her to blaze a trail in the new home systems industry. She continues to broaden her knowledge and enjoys sharing her real-world experiences and success with others.
