"Monique Gray Smith, the Founder of Little Drum Consulting has an exceptional capacity to walk in many lands. As an Aboriginal woman she sensitively interprets First Nation sensibilities and gives us context specific information.  Her experience working with governments and in the field of early childhood development make her an exceptional communicator between not for profits and government. She is well trusted and respected by the business community, the Aboriginal community, government and not for profits such as Roots of Empathy. Monique’s history of heading up  Aboriginal Head Start in BC, her leadership position on Boards, her long history of community development and her reputation for building peace bridges is well known."
