I have known Shaheen for many years & we've worked together across a number of diverse projects all of which have required their own unique skill set when it comes to Production Management. Shaheen has never failed to deliver in any area & has always provided a first-rate service even in situations where the budget has not necessarily matched the ambition. Calm, diplomatic & attentive to detail, a real asset to have & lead any production team.

I’ve had the opportunity of seeing Shaheen at work, over several years and across many, many challenging productions. I’ve always found her to be a true professional, and an inspiring Production Manager. She has kept some of the most difficult projects on track, on budget, on time and still, somehow, kept a smile on her face. She is extremely supportive of her teams, forward thinking and extraordinarily organized. Shaheen is without doubt, a valuable asset to any project.

Shaheen’s remarkable talents for business, management, communication and running a financial budget, and staying within budget while still being fair to her team requirements. Shaheen served not only as a useful individual asset to our team but also as a cooperative and attentive team-player. Her actions consistently inspired and motivated other team members.

The Media Queen excels in all areas of media production and project management - from budgeting through to delivery. Her natural curiosity about the ever-changing face of broadcast and online media, sees her seeking out new ways to broaden her knowledge and adapt her already extensive skill-set. Having seen her at work first-hand, I can confirm that she is capable of managing everything from a small crew to a multi-unit team - no challenge is too big. She provides inspirational leadership to those that work for her and has a unique ability to provide practical solutions to even the most complicated problems - and always does so with a smile!
