2023 Keynote Speaker - Joel Onyshuk

smiling man in suit and tie

Joel Onyshuk brings together a unique blend of business thought-leadership, a pastor's heart, ministry education, and passion for people. Joel is turned to as an expert in the Service Industry and manufacturing, a trusted advisor to Fortune 500 companies, global consulting firms, and over 100 more mid-size and large organizations to improve employee engagement, reduce turnover, and embed strong leadership best practices. This expertise has led him to become the co-founder of a startup software company alongside three former C-Suite executives from Aramark Corporation with the goal of becoming a $100M company by 2026. Outside of the business world, you’ll find Joel playing music on his piano, on the pickleball court, and spending time with his family in the sunny Tampa Bay area in Florida.
