Lili Shadab

Founder and Creative Director, Elite Productions International

As a trendsetter in every industry she has participated in, Lili Shadab has established herself as an event design innovator, with her finger on the pulse of style. Lili first began in the fashion industry as a designer and stylist. She then directed her creative talents into floral design and special event production - she started her business in a spare room in her home. This humble beginning is where Elite Productions International was born. In 1991 Lili launched what would become an event production powerhouse, fearless in the endeavor to create events that were only limited by her client’s imagination.

She has produced events for fortune 500 companies, private parties and local charities. Having spent countless hours volunteering for charitable organizations such as Laura’s House, South Orange County Chamber, City of Laguna Niguel special events committee and many others, Lili’s altruistic nature and passion for helping others, knows no bounds. She also serves on the Advisory Board of the Chapman University’s Leatherby Center for Entrepreneurship and Business Ethics. There, Lili collaborates with students and alumni on programs and events.
Not only has Lili built a reputable career; her peers have recognized her with a nomination for the Orange County Business Journal Excellence in Entrepreneurship Award, the Orange County Journal Women in Business Award, and The International Women’s Leadership Association, as a woman of outstanding leadership. She has also been nominated as the Event Solutions Magazine Spotlight Awards, Event Producer of the Year.

Lili’s eye for timeless elegance and sophistication along with her edgy, trend forward designs have moved her to the forefront of the industry, her attention to detail and exceeding her client’s dreams have kept her there.
