An Interview with WW Executive Assistant Gillian Dunn

We are delighted to welcome Gillian Dunn to the waltonwagner team, who joined us in August as our Executive Assistant. Gill stopped by the blog this morning to answer our six quick-fire questions and tell you a bit more about herself, including the time she went paragliding in Turkey, her favourite buildings in the world, and why she enjoys working with the WW team.

Question 1: What do you enjoy most about working in London?

That I get to work in a vibrant part of the world, which is culturally diverse and everything is close to hand.

Question 2: What is your favourite restaurant and why?

I don’t have a current favourite, but I do like ROKA in Mayfair and Sadaf, a Persian restaurant in Bayswater. The food is delicious and the oven baked bread is heaven! And last but not least, French’s in Wells-next-the-Sea – you can’t beat fish and chips by the sea!

Question 3: Tell us about your favourite buildings in the world.

The Shard in London and the Burj Al Arab in Dubai – I never get tired of looking at that building. And of course St Paul’s Cathedral – so much history and such an iconic landmark.

Question 4: Tell us one thing about working at waltonwagner that you enjoy.

I enjoy working with great people and the amazing projects they work on. I am also rather fond of Lady, the lovely office dog.

Question 5: What is the most memorable moment of your life? 

I would have to say that I have two memorable moments, and they are the birth of my children.

Question 6: Tell us three things we may not know about you.

1. I have a fear of heights, so still not quite sure what possessed me to try paragliding from Babadag mountain in Turkey at 6500 feet!
2. I used to be in a folk group, singing and playing the guitar, and appeared on TV.
3. I am a qualified masseuse.
