Allyson applies her fluency in French and German and several years’ consulting experience to the company she founded, International Marketing Partners Consultants, and is the author of Working with Americans, the first-ever book exclusively about the US business culture, that helps professionals improve relationships and negotiating effectiveness with their American business partners, bosses and colleagues. The book was greeted with acclaim, and Allyson was invited to talk about it on Sky, various BBC radio programmes and at the Hay-on-Wye literary festival. Notably, Working with Americans was the first ‘business’ book to feature at the festival.
