Author of best-selling personal finance books joins CBC-TV's DRAGONS' DEN
The man behind The Wealthy Barber is the newest member of CBC-TV's DRAGONS' DEN.
David Chilton, author and publisher of the multi-million selling Wealthy Barber series of personal finance books, will put his common sense approach to work judging and investing in new business proposals from Canadian entrepreneurs seeking help from the Dragons.
"David Chilton embodies Canadian entrepreneurial success, and through his terrific books he has shared his financial advice for the benefit of everyone," said Julie Bristow, executive director of studio and unscripted programming. "We can't wait to hear the insights he offers to those entering the DRAGONS' DEN this season."
The seventh season of DRAGONS' DEN begins September 2012. Chilton will join the well-loved - and feared - returning Dragons:
