Here's a snapshot of what Bernadette's clients
have to say:

I hired Bernadette as my co-writer on this project because she’s just so diligent and extraordinary in what she does. She was the ultimate team partner in making this project come to life. I wish the publisher, who initially signed me up, had connected us from the start because it would have been a dream process - like it was for the 12 months we worked together.

Radek Sali, Former CEO of Swisse Vitamins

We would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Bernadette Schwerdt, our ghost-writer, for all her help in making this book possible. Thank you for sitting with us for hundreds of hours, for helping us sift through the 200,000+ words we’ve written over the years, and for guiding us through the writing and publishing process that enabled us to find our voice, shape the narrative, and craft the stories that make up this book.
Gabby Leibovich, Catch.com

I wish I'd done it earlier! If you're thinking about working with Bernadette, I'd absolutely say it's a no brainer. I can't recommend her enough. Do it and do it now.
Kobi Simmat, bestpractice.biz

Working with Bernadette was an absolute game-changer for me. I couldn't have navigated the process alone—it felt like a daunting task to bring my ideas to life in the form of a book.; she helped bridge the gap between my ideas and transforming them into a tangible manuscript. Committing to that process was truly transformative—and it's been an incredible journey.
Amy Miocevich, Lumos Marketing

Thank you Bernadette for the time, effort and support you have put into helping bring my business story to life. Over countless conversations, hundreds of emails, and thousands of words, you have helped me distil a rollicking and rowdy life into a book that I hope will be of value to many others. From when we first met, I knew you were the right person to help me tell my story, and my trust and instinct has been rewarded. Thank you for guiding me through this journey and for providing me with an outstanding learning experience.
Stephen Hunt, Owner Hunt Hospitality

Bernadette is a wealth of information regarding writing and publishing. Through strategic questioning, she helped me clarify the purpose, structure and ‘hook’ of the book which gave me the direction I needed to get started and saved me so much time. She helped me realise my vision was realistic (not crazy!) and gave me the confidence and impetus for me to publish my book. I highly recommend her!
Donna Cameron, Author 'Colour, the secret to creating a sustainable wardrobe'

Bernadette is a publishing, writing, and storytelling insider who helped me write my debut book, a memoir published by Pan Macmillan. I approached her years back about the writing process and asked for her advice. Using examples from writing two of her own best selling business books, she gave me tips on not just building a book, but the encouragement to pursue what she knew would be a life-changing endeavour.
Mark Wales, SAS Soldier, Survivor Contestant

Bernadette's advice was instrumental in guiding me to successfully complete my first business book. She is very giving with her time and open to sharing her experiences. She has a genuine desire to see others succeed.
Steve Tighe, Futurist & Author of 'Rethinking Strategy'
