Let us do the things you don't have time to do
Sandi Bredy founded Acuity Advantage to help busy companies, entrepreneurs and hard-working executives trying to keep an upper hand on their businesses and their lives.
Although Sandi wasn’t born in Calgary, you know she’s a true Calgarian by the way she pronounces Calgary - Cal-gree, not Cal-gary!
When Sandi isn’t busy running to client meetings, volunteering, or busy with her responsibilities as Secretary on her Condo Board, she can be found behind her laptop with one eye on 48 Hours or Dateline while munching on Peanut M&Ms. On her down time, you may find her at one of Calgary’s many beautiful parks attempting to be a dog boss to Wheeler, her Hungarian Vizsla.
Sandi has spent over thirty years in corporate Calgary, primarily in the energy sector offering geoscience technical support. She undertook ever increasing responsibilities until ultimately landing her coveted role as Office Manager and HR Coordinator.
A well-respected liaison between busy executives in various departments, Sandi began to see tremendous voids within the industry. Her executive colleagues, inundated with work, often lacked adequate administrative support, along with the systems and processes needed to help run their day-to-day operations. These same executives were required to travel extensively and expressed concern leaving their home unattended. They were often prompted to hand their house keys over to unqualified and uninsured office personnel while they were away. As a natural problem solver, Sandi knew what she had to do.
She has developed a team of qualified professionals each with unique and diverse skillsets to help clients attain their business goals, lifestyle needs and ensure their home security while away. The Acuity Advantage Team draws satisfaction from taking stress and pressure off their clients leaving them to focus on what they do best.
Today, through Acuity Advantage, Sandi and her team are putting their expertise to work for companies and executives who require professional executive-level Lifestyle Assistance and Executive (or Personal) Assistance either in person or virtually, on a contract, project or part-time basis.
Acuity Advantage is the only accredited Home Watch Service in Alberta, offering clients home security and peace of mind while their home is unoccupied or vacant during work travel, vacation absence, or should their home be currently on the real estate market.
In this role, Sandi provided support to the President and an executive team across various business units, and was responsible for organizing and coordinating office operations and procedures. Responsibilities included general business/office administration, human resources, marketing, trade-shows & special events, IT training, policy development and much more.
