About Steve Street

I have worked in R&D within the Pharmaceutical industry for over 29 years. Up until April 2012 all of my career had been with one company, but that has now changed. I left that company and took up a new role on May 1, 2012 - still very much within the Pharmaceutical industry and again based in the UK. I have been blogging every week now for over 9 years but only on an external site since January 2012. Email updates of the blogs can be requested using the ‘follow’ option within Wordpress. The blogs are only ever my personal view of what I see, think and feel. I am delighted if you agree and find value; happy if you disagree with my views and overjoyed if you feel motivated to comment. Most of all I am simply grateful that you read. Cheers Steve

Talented Views…

I have attended many talent and succession planning meetings over the years. And even so, they are still one of the highlights – if not the highlight – of my year (at work at least). So far this year I … Continue reading

Selling Sales…

Washington DC. I have been there several times…but up until last week the closest I have been to seeing any famous site was from the airplane window coming into land at Reagan airport. Three visits – best I can remember … Continue reading

Recycled Stories…

I am a learner. Not saying I am a good learner…or even a quick learner. But I do learn eventually. I look to learn from what works well (most fun) and from what works not so well (most value). I … Continue reading
