Author of The Wealthy Barber | “Dragon” on CBC TV’s Dragons’ Den
David Chilton’s recipe for success is a clear vision, hard work, and some clever marketing. Whether it’s helping thousands of Canadians achieve personal financial success or investing in low-fat cookbooks, Chilton has always had a knack for recognizing great ventures from the get-go. In his newest incarnation as a “dragon” on CBC TV’s Dragons’ Den, Chilton proudly leverages that knack, regularly putting his business expertise to work.
David’s first book, The Wealthy Barber, has sold an astonishing two million copies in Canada. His latest book, The Wealthy Barber Returns is also a runaway Canadian bestseller. He also published the bestselling cookbooks Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates and Eat, Shrink & Be Merry! (working with authors Janet and Greta Podleski).
David 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.
