Extraordinary Hero from "The Miracle on the Hudson"

About Dave Sanderson

Dave is an inspirational survivor, author, and nationally sought-out leadership speaker.

When US Airways Flight 1549, or 'The Miracle on the Hudson,' ditched into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, Dave Sanderson knew he was exactly where he was supposed to be.

As the last passenger off the back of the plane on that fateful day, he took responsibility for the well-being and safety of others. He risked his own life in the frigid water to help other passengers off the plane but despite the ...

Dave is an excellent presenter – very personable to both organizer and audience. It was truly a pleasure to meet him.”

I would recommend Dave and this program to anyone in a position of senior leadership, as it is helpful in achieving a unified mindset among divergent groups.

What began as normal day in Dave's life turned into an inspirational story. His story is uplifting to the human spirit. Dave is a charismatic and heartfelt communicator, Dave had our attention and tugged at our emotions with the real-life photos and his words. He was a hero that day and it changed his life forever - he was able to realize how much he wanted to pursue helping others. I loved when he shared this, because sometimes we work and aren't passionate about what we do - now he gets to work and be passionate about he does as a representative for the Red Cross - an organization that he personally felt helped all the crash victims that day and days to come. It was a memorable and exciting experience for all of us!

Mychal H. Walker, Sr., President - Atlanta Association of Health Underwriters

We recently had Dave Sanderson visit and speak with our team of 30+ office leaders (covering the tri-state area) on the topic of Mission Focused Leadership. I would recommend Dave and this program to anyone in a position of senior leadership, as it is helpful in achieving a unified mindset among divergent groups. Of particular interest to me was the explanations around "Sully's Decision Making Process" as well as "the Six Primary Reasons People Do What they Do." In these concepts, diverse teams can discover commonality of experience and commonality of purpose. I believe that it is these qualities that most sets Dave's program apart from others that I have experienced. Thank you Dave, for bringing this excellent program to Long and Foster!

Dave Sanderson gave a leadership presentation at our recent regional managers meeting. His story and how he survived a harrowing experience gave our managers a great lesson on how to think clearly in a difficult and chaotic situation. The process Dave taught helped us to be able to sort out the unproductive thought process and showed us how to keep your mind focused on the mission ahead. The steps he gave us were easy to remember and something we can readily use in our everyday dealings with our clients, agents, employees, families, and friends. We thank Dave for bringing his leadership message and guide to our group and we wish him all the best in bringing that message to other groups as well.
