Leonard has spent more than 20 years of his professional career facilitating relationships between First Nations communities and industry across British Columbia, in strategic leadership and operational roles with the Stk’emlupsemc te Secwepemc Nation, the Aboriginal Mentoring & Training Association and BC Corrections. Known for his upstanding ethical and moral standards, and his unwavering commitment to doing what he says he’s going to do, Leonard has a strong track record of success in developing lasting Aboriginal-Industry partnerships across the mining, forestry, powerline and oil and gas sectors. His strong communication skills and empathetic approach to work have demonstrated time and time again that it’s possible to build positive and meaningful relationships, regardless of geographical setting, project constraints and many other project variables.
Meaningful, successful Industry – First Nations partnerships exist. But they take time and effort to create, foster and grow, and require the willingness and commitment of both parties to see and hear the world from the other’s perspective.
