Best-selling author David Chilton to keynote Canadian Furniture Show
November 4, 2015,
MONTRÉAL — David Chilton, formerly of CBC-TV’s “Dragon’s Den” and writer of the best-seller “The Wealthy Barber,” will be the keynote speaker at the 2016 Canadian Furniture Show.
His keynote address will be on Sunday, May 29 — the second day of the show — at 9 a.m., just before the show opens.
Called “charming, unpretentious, and funny,” by the Chicago Sun-Times, Chilton puts his business expertise and life experience to work in his informative and inspiring talks. He began his career by self-publishing “The Wealthy Barber” in 1989. It was targeted to those with little investment experience, helping 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 “The Wealthy Barber Returns” – also self-published – is another Canadian best-seller. He is also the publisher of best-selling cookbooks, by authors Janet and Greta Podleski.
“We are honored and exceedingly pleased to welcome David Chilton to this year’s show,” said Canadian Furniture Show President and CEO Pierre Richard.
“His presence is in keeping with our continued efforts to enhance the show to better meet the industry’s needs,” he continued. “This impressive author and speaker, who has a flair for business and investments, will be an outstanding addition to our event.”
On Sunday morning, show participants will be invited for breakfast and Chilton’s inspirational presentation, followed by a book-signing session, during which a few hundred audience members will receive a copy of his latest book.
“His down-to-earth, cheerful and upbeat outlook on life will definitely appeal to everyone attending the show,” Richard said.
The 2016 Canadian Furniture Show will be May 28-30 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.
