The Reality of Doing Business with First Nations

About Lisa Mueller 

Lisa Mueller from the Tsilhqot'in Nation is the founder and creator of the Nation2Nation Forum in Terrace, BC. She is a First Nation consultant, community builder and workshop facilitator recognized as a young, upcoming voice and connector in the First Nation Community in BC.

Lisa is passionate about building long-term relationships with First Nation leaders, government officials and industry to share their perspectives on economic development. She is known for her ability to bring these leaders together to engage in meaningful and respectful dialogue. Her focus is always on connecting people and being the bridge between First Nations, and private industry and government. She works hard to bring the right stakeholders to the conversation.

Driven by her passion to see First Nations more involved in business in the provincial and national economy, she felt compelled to create a platform for First Nations leaders to share their perspectives on economic development and major projects. The inaugural Nation2Nation Forum was held in Terrace in November 2015 and continues as an annual forum.

Lisa is also a committed volunteer serving her communities. She was a Rotary member for 10 years, sat on the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy Committee, and a past chair of North Coast Women in Business. She is currently the secretary/treasury of Houston Hospice Society and a board member of BC CN Community board for Northwest BC, and is on the advisory council for Resource works.
