Sasquatch Blood Consulting
My name is Dominic Charlie, my mother is from Liverpool, England and my father is from Sts’ailes, BC. I come from a cultural diverse family, I have worked in construction, manufacturing, hospitality, and the mental health industries and I also started my own business from negotiating the lease to design, construction, funding, permitting/licensing, through to the operation phase. In short I have an intimate understanding of the cultural differences that exist especially between First Nation and non First Nation communities, as well as the process doing business in different industries. What we offer here at my firm is simple, we can wade through all cultural differences and through all requirements to get businesses down the road to success. We can play a major role, such as running point on major projects, or we can play more of a supporting role to help First Nation Communities and/or businesses with getting the job done. Why I chose this path is because I am tired of seeing outside businesses take advantage of First Nation Communities. In addition I have studied the effects of lateral violence in First Nation Communities for over 15 years and I have found when First Nation Businesses and Communities are doing good with the focus being on overall community health the negative impacts of our past slowly retreat into the past.
