When the new PM steps in, the question of Brexit would have been a foregone conclusion. There will be no more questions to Brexit or not. The discussions will be around firming up a clear and agreed upon exit strategy.

They should also kickoff as many trade deal negotiations with as many non-EU countries as they can now. The more they score these, the more leverage they have going through the process, and the calmer it will get.
"The question of Brexit would have been a foregone conclusion." au contraire, you really do not understand the process do you? Now Cameron has stepped away nobody has the authority to make any decisions or draw any conclusions before the new PM is in place.
Hopefully some civil service mandarins will draw up options for the new PM to study but he is not obliged to accept any.

"They should also kickoff as many trade deal negotiations.... " Typically these take 4 to 5 years or longer; of course if UK lies on the floor and accepts all the demands from the other partners then it would be quicker but not better.
