As an added bonus, every registrant will receive a copy of his latest bestseller The Wealthy Barber Returns.

Speaker Biography
David Chilton - Former "Dragon" on CBC TV's Dragons' Den | Bestselling Author of The Wealthy Barber
Whether helping millions of Canadians achieve personal financial success or investing in low-fat cookbooks, David Chilton has always had a knack for recognizing great ventures, a skill he proudly leverages as a "dragon" on CBC television's #1 hit show, Dragons' Den.  Called "charming, unpretentious, and funny" by The Chicago Sun-Times, Mr. Chilton puts his business expertise and life experience to work in his informative and inspiring talks.

Mr. Chilton began his career by self-publishing his book The Wealthy Barber in 1989. It was written in 26 months, and was specifically targeted toward those with little investment experience, in order to help them develop positive personal-finance habits.  The book has become one of the most popular Canadian books of all time, selling over two million copies since its release.  His second book, also self-published, is The Wealthy Barber Returns, and is yet another runaway Canadian bestseller.  Mr. Chilton is also the publisher of the best-selling cookbooks Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates, and Eat, Shrink & Be Merry(working with authors Janet and Greta Podleski).

Mr. Chilton is an economics graduate from Wilfrid Laurier University, where he won the award for the highest mark in the country on the Canadian Securities Course.  He is a frequent guest on national television and radio shows.
