Profile: An interview with Steven Walker


An interview with Steven Walker - Founder, director, and co-owner of London- and Berlin-based medical communications agency Stgilesmedical.

As the sun beats down on another glorious London afternoon, you decide to take a step away from the hustle and bustle of the Oxford Street throngs, and into the leafy courtyard of St Giles-in-the-Fields Church. And, as you stroll past the cool shadow of the towering Palladian edifice, where the dappled sunlight dances between the leaves of the courtyard trees and glints off the stained-glass windows soaring above, you come to the historic Vestry House, built in 1733. Housed within its wood-panelled rooms is Stgilesmedical, a niche agency founded in 2014 by Yvonne Anderson and Steven Walker, and we’ve come here to hear his story.
