“I don’t think May’s leaving anything to chance, and she’ll have worked out Trump’s approach” – Allyson Stewart-Allen
Theresa May is currently in the unenviable position of simultaneously having to negotiate trade deals with Europe to the East, and the US to the West. And as with all British business leaders trying to build their US sales and presence, the Prime Minister must ensure she is in sync with the American businessman leading the country. Allyson Stewart-Allen is the Director at International Marketing Partners, and she joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast to offer her views on the approach May should take.

2016: the year of Brexit - part 2
2016 will always be remembered as the year of Brexit, even though formal negotiations to navigate our way out of the bloc are yet to begin, and doubts are still being raised about the date of March 31st 2017, when Article 50 is due to be triggered. But 2016 was the year when the vote that would change the course of British history was announced, carried out and revealed. Yesterday we looked at the build up to the vote on June 23rd. Today, we head back to the day of Friday June 24th - the day that changed British politics forever. Share Radio's Joe Aldridge reports.
