Author of The Wealthy Barber & Judge on CBC's Dragons' Den
David Chilton, author of Canada's all-time best-selling book, The Wealthy Barber, is among the most sought after speakers in North America . His unique combination of financial knowledge and humor has helped to take the intimidation out of financial planning for millions of Canadians. He is also one of the co-stars of CBC's Dragons' Den.
David Chilton's speeches aren't about just money: they're about believing in yourself, overcoming mistakes (many of his are truly hilarious) and, most importantly, they're about perspective -- the missing ingredient in many people's financial lives. The sequel to The Wealthy Barber, entitled The Wealthy Barber Returns, offers expanded advice--twenty years worth--to a new generation of Canadians seeking strong, non-technical and reliable advice from the clever mind of David Chilton. Chilton is the opposite of the stereotypical dry financial expert: he's "charming, unpretentious and funny" says The Chicago Sun-Times.
Besides finance, Chilton took on the billion-dollar food industry with the Podleski sisters. As their company's president and publisher, he helped them turn their idea of low-fat cookbooks into an award-winning food company. Their cookbook, Looneyspoons, was one of the fastest selling books in Canadian publishing history, joining another classic: The Wealthy Barber.
