About Steve Street

I have worked in R&D within the Pharmaceutical industry for over 30 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 10 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

Tuesday Morning…

I first met with my father-in-law nearly 40 years ago. He had no idea at our first meeting that I was going to become his son-in-law. I wasn’t thinking that either. I was just nervous about meeting him. It was … Continue reading

Father Forward…

I have come to the not surprising conclusion that I am just like my father. More precisely I am just like my memory of my father. More precisely again I am just like all the amazingly positive memories I have … Continue reading

First Slides…

I remember my first Chief Executive Officer. I guess more precise would be that I remember the first time I interacted with a CEO. I had been asked to make a presentation. And to wear a suit. I didn’t have … Continue reading

Deciding Memories…

I decided not to do something last week. I can remember exactly what and why and when. It was a good decision. It was a proposal for an investment that was too much, too risky and too soon. It was … Continue reading
