With over 25 years as an award-winning marketing consultant, advertising account director and copywriter, Bernadette is well placed to document the significant changes that are occurring in the global marketing industry.

A successful businesswoman in her own right, she has translated her own experience in setting up an online business, The Australian School of Copywriting (copyschool.com), overlaid the experiences of over 35 of Australia’s top online entrepreneurs and created this book as a blueprint for online success that shows anyone, even those with no business or IT skills, how to turn a passion or a hobby into an online business.

Having worked with iconic clients such as Apple, BHP, Optus, Telstra, Coles, Australia Post and Goldman Sachs, Bernadette draws upon that depth and breadth of business experience to shine a light on how online entrepreneurship is rapidly changing the face of business and why now is without doubt, the most exciting time in history to start an online business.

This is the best session I've been to in ages. Bernadette was knowledgeable, approachable, well prepared and great to listen to. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

 

As I have only recently launched on to the public speaking circuit I have required significant counsel and mentoring. Bernadette Schwerdt has proven to be an absolute god send. She is consistent and extremely professional in her approach, taking the time to address my key concerns. Recently I was asked to deliver a Ted talk. Without Bernadette’s clarity and direction, there is no way I could have achieved the outcome I so desired. She is sound across all areas of the speaking world and is an asset to anyone wanting to succeed in this field.

 

Thank you so much, our delegates just loved Bernadette’s session! She was rated as the best speaker of the conference.

 

Bernadette provided down to earth examples on what was possible.

 

Bernadette's probing questioning skills enabled us to explore issues we would never have uncovered without her. She has an intuitive ability to see an issue from a different perspective. Our phone conversation went so quickly, but it has started our company on an amazing journey. My advice - make sure you record the conversation so you capture all her wisdom.

On behalf of all of us, thank you so much for sharing your perspectives and insights with us at the recent TEDx event at KPMG in Melbourne. Your insights and learnings were VERY well received by the audience, and as you might have noticed, the theatre in Melbourne was at full capacity with live video streaming to our interstate offices (including Sydney, Parramatta, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Gold Coast, Hobart and Launceston). For us at KPMG, hosting a TEDx event is all about inspiring our people through the perspectives of wonderful people like yourself. In the words of TED, it is all about “ideas worth spreading” and you certainly brought that to us on Friday with a refreshing, entertaining and unique talk!

 

Thank you for your engaging presentation last week as a part of Business Week, it was a great event to kick of the week and we have received fantastic feedback about your presentation. It was a pleasure working with you and Monique in the lead up to this event, and I hope you would consider presenting at future events if the opportunity was to arise.

 

A really useful morning and one I can share with my clients.

 

Opened my eyes to what can be done with small business ventures.

 

Inspirational presentation by Bernadette Schwerdt.

So did I! That’s why I went and interviewed them. Discover their behind-the-scenes stories here, and learn how you can build your own online business too!

Why trust matters and how to get it. One of the biggest reasons businesses fail, especially new ones, is because they fail to position their business as a trusted authority to instil a sense of security in the buyer. Read... read more
