What were you thinking: Episode one

Nick Timothy, former Joint Chief of Staff to Theresa May

Former political advisor Laura Round speaks to politicians, opinion formers and business people to find out about the experiences, people and places that have inspired them. What motivates them? Why did they decide to do what they do? What are the most memorable and surprising situations they have found themselves in? The answer is often unexpected.

In the first episode of What Were You Thinking, Laura is joined by Nick Timothy who was Joint Chief of Staff to Theresa May in Number 10 and in the Home Office.

Nick provides a rare glimpse into what it is really like working in Downing Street. It is a fascinating discussion where he talks about the threats of China, Theresa May’s change of heart on Huawei and his concerns around policing.

Nick even shares stories from a meeting with President Trump in the Oval Office, which he hasn’t discussed publicly before… It really is quite something!
