A Truly Unique Perspective
A Truly Unique Perspective is quickly becoming bestselling author, entrepreneur, financial guru and “dragon” David Chilton’s most sought after presentation. As someone who has experienced both success and failure, David humorously illustrates how a healthy perspective can lead to positive results, despite what life throws at you, using examples from both his professional and private life, including “behind the scenes” stories from Dragons’ Den.
Recipe for Success
David Chilton’s recipe for success is hard work, a clear vision and some clever marketing. Whether it’s helping thousands of Canadians achieve personal financial success or investing in low-fat cookbooks, David has always had a knack for recognizing great ventures from the get-go. Famously known for his all-time best selling book The Wealthy Barber, David has in recent years partnered up with the Podleski sisters to take on the multi-national, billion-dollar food industry. As their company president and publisher, David has helped the Podleskis turn their idea of low-fat cookbooks into an award-winning food company. The Podleski cookbook, Looneyspoons, is now one of the fastest selling books in Canadian publishing history. Hear this true David versus Goliath story from the inspiring, funny and entertaining David Chilton.
The Common Sense Guide to Successful Financial Planning
The book The Wealthy Barber has accomplished a “publishing impossible” by selling over two million copies in North America. More than ten years after it was first published, it still appears regularly on bestseller lists. The reason for its sustained popularity? It provides financial education in an entertaining and understandable format. The Wealthy Barber is not full of new techniques, complex strategies, nor get-rich-quick-or-even-semi-quick schemes. Instead, it focuses on the financial planning basics that, over time, have proven to be effective. It’s primarily common sense—common sense that, unfortunately, in our society is not common knowledge. By using a “novel” format and strong doses of humour, Dave has taken the intimidation and boredom out of the financial-education experience. Dave’s speech delivery does not fit the stereotype of a dry financial expert. The Chicago Sun-Times said it most succinctly when they stated “Chilton is charming, unpretentious, and funny.”
