This week’s Conversations with Goodman podcast guest is Neil Culp (BA ’04, MBA ’06) who talks to host Susan LeBlanc about his Brock experience and his recent 40 Under Forty award.
Last month, Culp received a 40 Under Forty Business Achievement Award at a recognition ceremony hosted by Business Link Media Group. He was joined by Brock colleagues Sandy Howe, Charles Kissi and Will Parent, along with a number of Brock alumni who also received the award.
“It’s a great celebration of what talents Niagara has to offer,” says Culp.
Part of the second graduating MBA class from the Goodman School of Business, Culp was one of the first students to specialize his degree in human resource management.
After graduating with two degrees, Culp remained connected to the University, working at the Goodman School of Business for eight years as a part-time instructor, something he is very passionate about.
“I learned very early on in my career that if you want to learn a topic really well, you teach it. Because people will challenge, people will question and it really requires you to be on your game. So I’ve loved it for that, I’ve loved giving back to a University that gave me so much as a student here,” says Culp.
“Seeing the future of HR here in the region and across Ontario and having an opportunity to encourage and shape that is really cool for me.”
Culp is the associate director of organizational development and effectiveness at Brock University and the president of the Niagara chapter of the Human Resources Professionals Association.
This podcast is the latest in the Conversations with Goodman series which is produced by the Goodman Marketing, Communications and Alumni Relations team and features guests from the Goodman community.
