David Chalk is the CEO of Chalk Media Corp and has been a leading expert in the technology and computer industry for over 30 years.
He has been the face of Technology in Canada hosting the award winning Dave Chalk computer show for over 14 years. He educated viewers on how to use the newest technologies as they hit the market.
A retail pioneer, David developed the blueprint for the super stores of today when he opened Doppler Computer Superstores in 1980. In 1985, David developed the first Point of Sale and Supply Chain Management solution for the computer industry which was certified by Ernst & Young.
In 1997, he founded Chalk Media, a company that employed over 140 staff around North AMerica providing services including real time knowledge based video to Governments, the US military and Corporations. A serial Entrepreneur David has launched more than 20 companies in the fields of technology, education, construction, marketing, distribution, manufacturing and retail but it’s his interest in Business Resilience that has occupied him for the past 10 years.
Today David consults with companies to help bridge the gap between technology and resilience. He is considered one of the leading experts on Business Autonomics and Cyber Security. David recognized very early on that there was a security problem with the rapid automation of process across industries. This vulnerability led him to study the problem and to developing real time solutions. Today organizations turn to him to determine how to best protect themselves from cyber hacking.
What is most inspiring about David is he was once labeled “Mentally Retarded” in school. If it were not for his mother who believed in him and a few teachers, David would have never reached his potential or gone after his dreams. He was well into his 40’s before he was diagnosed with severe dyslexia. By then he had developed coping skills that allowed him to overcome his challenges and reach his goals despite suffering from depression, a common side effect of dyslexia.
Inspiring, engaging with a toolkit of expertise that ranges from Technology to Entrepreneurship, Business Leadership, Marketing, Retail, Customer Service, Managing Change, Supply Chain Management and Cyber Security, it’s no wonder David Chalk is in such high demand as a business consultant and keynote speaker.
