Dave Sanderson is an inspirational survivor, speaker, and author. His thoughts on leadership have made him an internationally sought out speaker. When US Airways Flight 1549 (or “The Miracle on the Hudson”) ditched into the Hudson on January 15, 2009, Dave knew he was exactly where he was supposed to be.
The last passenger off the back of the plane on that fateful day, he was largely responsible for the well-being and safety of others, risking his own life in the frigid water to help other passengers off the plane. Despite the hazards to himself, Sanderson thought only of helping others and emerged from the wreckage with a mission to encourage to do the right thing.
Today he travels the globe sharing his inspirational and motivational leadership messages to help people make a difference in how they do business and live their lives.
