Keynote Speaker: David Chilton

We are thrilled to have David Chilton as our keynote speaker, ready to ignite our minds with his wealth of knowledge, experience, and invaluable insights that will propel businesses to new heights!

As the author of The Wealthy Barber, Canada’s all-time best-selling book, former ‘Dragon’ on CBC TV’s Dragon’ Den, and an economics graduate from Wilfrid Laurier University, Chilton brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. But Chilton’s impact goes beyond finances. His unique combination of knowledge and humour has transformed the way people approach financial planning, making it more accessible and engaging. His speeches are not just about money; They’re about believing in yourself, overcoming mistakes (many of his are truly hilarious) and, most importantly, they’re about perspective – essential elements for success in business and life.

Chilton will speak on Thursday, January 23, 2025, during the lunch break.
