A new workshop will take place next month to recognize Indianapolis business leaders who have made substantial contributions to their businesses and the community. Nominations are open through April 24 for Indy's Most Pivotal Leaders, which will be held at Purdue University.

Chris Bittinger, president of Indianapolis-based leadership development firm Open Pivot and founder of the Indy's Most Pivotal Leaders event, says the workshop will honor the best and brightest in the city.

"I started Indy’s Most Pivotal Leaders” because I saw a need to recognize the work so many leaders are doing inside their company," said Bittinger. "I’m excited to give them an opportunity to develop their skills, recharge their batteries and engage with other leaders from around Indianapolis. This event is the first in a new initiative to honor their contributions and support their growth as influencers in our community."

The event will feature conversations with Bittinger as well as Purdue Men's Basketball Head Coach Matt Painter. It will take place May 17 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Mackey Complex on Purdue's campus.
