“Entrepreneur Brett Wilson is leaving the show Dragons’ Den at the end of the current season.
CBC-TV executive Julie Bristow says Wilson and the broadcaster could not agree on the terms of his contract.“
Brett is a great guy and one of my most favourite Dragon on the show. I love the fact that Brett managed to find ways to close most of his Den’s deals. I like many of the businesses he invests in and secretly wish I could also invest in some of them if I am given the chance! (I won’t name them publicly here. :)
I will add more to this article if I have more to report.
I know I will miss watching Brett on the show. Good luck and all the best Brett.
P.S. On a personal note, in June 2008, Brett was really nice in agreeing to be video interviewed by me and he answered every question I had. It was a great pleasure to know Brett before he appeared on the Den. And I can honestly say Brett has always been the same easy going, friendly and nice guy. Here are links to part 1 and part 2 of the video interviews.
