Keith Kirkpatrick, Founder & Advisor

Keith has earned recognition as one of NWI's leading authorities on organizational leadership and entrepreneurship. As Founder and Advisor to the SSLC, Keith is also President of the KPM Group. He is a trusted coach and adviser to many businesses, not-for-profits and community leaders. Hundreds of university students, community leaders, and business executives have credited him for enhancing their skills and helping them move toward their potential. Keith hosts a weekly show on Lakeshore Public Television focusing on key regional issues, events and people. Keith was the founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Innovative Leadership at Indiana University Northwest from 2000-07. From 1992 through 2000, Keith served as founding Executive Director for the Northwest Indiana Entrepreneurship Academy, working closely with the Northwest Indiana Forum and Small Business Development Center before aiding in the start-up of the Porter County Community Foundation where he served as Executive Director. Keith has conducted hundreds of seminars in the areas of marketing, team building, customer service, leadership, supervision, strategic thinking, and motivation. He has taught business classes at Indiana University Northwest and IVY Tech Community College, while serving as a guest lecturer at Purdue University Calumet, Valparaiso University, Purdue North Central and Calumet College. Keith was recruited to make nine trips to Eastern Europe serving as visiting faculty for the MBA program at Belarus State University and presenting at several universities in Minsk. He is a former faculty fellow at the Indiana University Tobias Leadership Center. | South Shore Leadership Center Names Tom Stevens as Interim President and CEO [cached]

Stevens began his interim role Sept. 1 and will remain in that role while the SSLC conducts a search to find a permanent replacement for Keith Kirkpatrick, SSLC's outgoing president and executive director.

Kirkpatrick, who announced in June that he would be leaving the SSLC to pursue other professional and personal opportunities, had led the SSLC for 13 years. Kirkpatrick will serve in an advisory capacity to the Center and facilitate LNI and SLYCE sessions during the transition. The SSLC offers its signature programs, Leadership Northwest Indiana (LNI) and the South Shore Leadership Youth for Community Engagement (SLYCE) Program.
"On behalf of the Board, I want to thank Keith for his significant contributions and many years of service.
"The Board as well as the more than 1,200 LNI and SLYCE alumni appreciate Keith's dedicated service to the Center and his leadership in developing successful programs designed to improve the quality of life in northwest Indiana."

Leaders as Heroes - [cached]

The fund-raising awards presentation honored 11 finalists by shining a spotlight on local leaders who are "often the unsung heroes in their communities," says Keith Kirkpatrick, SSLC's president and CEO. "The community leaders we are celebrating work tirelessly to improve their communities and make Northwest Indiana a better place to live," he says.

Leaders as Heroes Inductees - [cached]

Keith Kirkpatrick asked hundreds of guests to raise their champagne glasses to symbolically toast the newest Leaders as Heroes inductees.

More realistically, Kirkpatrick hoped his toast at the jam-packed Avalon Manor in Merrillville raised awareness to the importance of publicly recognizing our region's "doers, founders and risk-takers," as he calls them.
"This is our salute to your leadership, and to each of you who guide our organizations and make things happen," says Kirkpatrick, president and CEO of the South Shore Leadership Center.
The center received an overwhelming response to its call for nominations for the fourth annual awards tribute, designed to honor unsung leaders who exemplify a vision to educate, challenge, inspire, encourage, connect and engage. Northwest Indiana is led by a powerful network of diverse, innovative and energetic leaders who routinely advance effective solutions to significant issues in our communities, yet have received little recognition for their achievements in leadership, Kirkpatrick says.
"These leaders are truly our region's greatest asset," Kirkpatrick told guests.
As Kirkpatrick puts it, "Geof Benson is all about the environment.
