Rebecca Burn-Callander is a business journalist with six years on the beat. She cut her teeth writing private equity news for Real Deals before heading over to Real Business Magazine and spending three manic years interviewing entrepreneurs, living and breathing small businesses and generally patronising The Trafalgar pub on the Kings Road. After a stint writing about law (not recommended) and accounting (drier than a dirty martini) at Think Publishing, she joined Smarta.com to focus on the start-up sector.
She joins Management Today to head up the web arm of the brand. With her crack team of ace wordsmiths, they will be producing content sticky enough to weld a Challenger 2 Battle Tank to a greased wall.
When not wired in to Analytics, Twitter, FT.com or LolCats, you'll find her nursing a Guinness at the bar.
