Dave Sanderson was the last person off of the plane, US Airways Flight 1549, or “The Miracle on the Hudson.” Within only a few moments in the air, two engines went dead and Captain Sully glided into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009. The movie Sully, starring Tom Hanks, is about this story.
Dave was 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 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 others to do the right thing.
That experience profoundly changed his life and 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.
On this show we discuss entrepreneurship, teamwork, and his newest book, Moments Matter.
