He's not just one of Canada's top entrepreneurs and a Dragon Emeritus, but he is also a philanthropist who always wants to give back.
Within a penchant for investing in people rather than projects, W. Brett Wilson is proof that it’s possible to succeed in business without losing your principles. His stories about success, mistakes and finding balance leave his audiences inspired to achieve even the loftiest of personal goals. Brett was a co-founder of FirstEnergy Capital Corp. (Canada’s leading energy focused investment bank) and has developed extensive holdings in real estate, agriculture, sports and entertainment. A popular television personality, he spent three years on CBC’s hit reality TV show, Dragons’ Den, where he established himself as the all time lead deal-making “dragon.”
A noted philanthropist, Brett has sought to inspire, engage and lead the business community and those with wealth into seeing corporate social responsibility as an opportunity rather than an obligation. To this end, he has organized dozens of events and raised/donated tens of millions of dollars for a wide range of charitable. Brett is also the founder of the W. Brett Wilson Centre for Entrepreneurial Excellence at the University of Saskatchewan and the Wilson Centre for Domestic Abuse Studies at the Calgary Counseling Centre.
Brett has received wide recognition for his business and philanthropic leadership. He has been recognized as “Alberta Business Person of the Year,” as “Calgary’s Person of the Year,” and as a Nation Builder by The Canadian Youth Business Foundation. In 2010, Brett received an Honorary Doctorate of Laws from Royal Roads University. In 2011, he was awarded the Order of Canada and subsequently inducted into the Saskatchewan Order of Merit in 2012.

Brett’s best selling semi-autobiography, “Redefining Success: Still Making Mistakes” was published in November 2012 and still occasionally makes the Best Seller list in Canada. Brett thoroughly enjoys speaking to a live audience, spreading his messaging about work life balance, making mistakes and his three essences of empowerment – studying marketing, entrepreneurship and philanthropy.
