On today’s episode I’m so excited to introduce you to a man who has used his own personal transformation journey as a source of inspiration for the growth and development of others – specifically his family, community members and other stakeholders.
Neel Sus is the CEO and CPO (that’s Chief People Development Officer) at Susco Solutions in New Orleans, Louisiana. Susco was founded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina when Neel discovered he could leverage his passion for software engineering to solve sticky operational challenges faced by some of the biggest industrial enterprises in the Gulf South.
Neel’s personal transformation has been inspiring to witness over the last several years. His focus on holistic well-being has helped him achieve a greater sense of spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, relational and professional alignment in his life. And that alignment supports the positive impact he has on the New Orleans community in the form of active mentorship of young people, other entrepreneurs, students, business associates, his Susco teammates and so many more.
This was a fun opportunity to drop in with a friend who I’ve admired and been inspired by for a long time.
So I hope you enjoy my conversation with Neel, let’s get into it!
