About us

Training Scenarios combines the crisis management and leadership expertise of crisis management consultants with the production skills of TV directors, presenters, cameramen and film editors.

Our three company directors are:

HELEN SHANNON, Chartered engineer, FIChemE.

Helen started her career as a plant manager with ICI Chemicals and Polymers in a major hazard chemical and explosives plant. She later moved as a regulator in safety and emergency management to the Offshore Safety Division of HSE in the post Cullen regime. In 1995 she joined Midland and Scottish Resources heading all management support departments including safety, human resources, quality control, moving soon to Atlantic Power as Operations Business Manager. In recent years she consults UK industry in crisis leadership and emergency management.


Simon has 25 years experience in the television broadcast and corporate industries. He started his career as a documentary cameraman for many of the top world broadcasters. He now uses his production and producing skills to integrate video into multi-media platforms specialising in online video campaigns and training films. Training Scenarios benefit from Simon’s editing suites in south-west London.


For more than 15 years Helen was a senior producer, director and programme editor of mainstream factual BBC TV programmes (Panorama, Newsnight, Watchdog, etc)

Her core skills embrace all aspects of TV video production, script editing and journalism, underpinned by a wealth of contacts in industry, government and broadcasting. For the last nine years she has been using this expertise to write, produce and direct corporate and training videos.  Helen is also an experienced media trainer.
