W. Brett Wilson, iconic Canadian entrepreneur, philanthropist and three-season panellist on CBC's Dragons' Den, was invited as a guest speaker for the Entrepreneurship Bridges Lecture Series.

He shared his experiences in the business world and discussed what he would do differently if he could start over. Attendees of the January 30 event received a free copy of his book. Thanks to Mr. Wilson’s generosity, they had the opportunity to meet him personally at the end to get their book signed or to ask more specific questions.

Here are the top three tips for success proposed by Mr. Wilson:

1.       Study marketing

2.       Study entrepreneurship

3.       Philanthropy is good business
