Brendan—call me Brendo—made every door in Sydney open when I was over for SWF. He knows everyone and everyone knows him. He launched my memoir two years ago securing a major national serial and strong reviews. When I arrived for SWF nearly two years later he got me on ABC nationally and locally which meant my events sold out and I sold loads of books. He balanced my schedule and made sure I wasn’t frazzled and always had a coffee to counter jetlag.
