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.

I have known Shaheen more than 15 years, and I have witnessed over the years of working together her commitment and abilities to stay calm and focused whatever the situation. 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!

I had the privilege of working with Shaheen during the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2020 where she joined our broadcast operation team as a satellite production coordinator. Shaheen was extremely dependable, hard-working and diligent individual who were not only committed to her tasks but she even went beyond her roles to support others where most needed. Her excellent communication skills and problem-solving attitude made our operations with various internal and external stakeholders much smoother. Her support in the team, with her extensive knowledge and experiences of the industry/business, proved to be an important factor of the successful delivery of the event broadcast operation.

I came to Shaheen with an obscenely ambitious project and her and her fab team pulled it out of the bag! I had under a week of pre-production before my crew and I descended on Qatar for a five day shoot, we needed 60+ talent and over ten locations. Not to mention props, costume and the rest of fun that comes with any shoot. Somehow, we left with one of the most beautiful films I’ve had the privilege to produce, and I can’t thank Shaheen and her team enough for making it happen.
