Inspirational Survivor, TEDx Speaker and Author
Dave Sanderson was a top sales producer in every company he worked for and on January 15th, 2009 was on a business trip he had made hundreds of times before. Like all of us when we travel, especially on business, things are often routine, and we take things for granted. Then out of the blue something happens that changes what was once routine to a day that changes your life.
When US Airways Flight 1549, or “The Miracle on the Hudson” ditched into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, Dave Sanderson not only survived the “crash” but also started to realize that the moments that made up his life prepared him for what was about to happen.
After the incident, the lessons and strategies that he learned throughout his life were instrumental that day and the days following. He started to realize that one can actually grow from traumatic life experiences and set out on a path to not only share the lessons from that day but practical and implementable strategies anyone can use to not only survive their “personal plane crash” moment but grow and thrive.
Sanderson reveals the inner strength it took to make it through the day, and how you can grow from challenges throughout your personal and business life and how resiliency, leadership, and state management can help you not only overcome any obstacle but grow and thrive!
In addition to speaking, mentoring and training, Dave has been appeared on CBS, CTV, Global TV, NewsTalk1010 and numerous local TV and Radio stations and has been featured in publications such as “SUCCESS” Magazine, “Entrepreneur” and “AARP Magazine”. Dave has helped the American Red Cross raise over $13M since the Miracle on the Hudson. Dave conducts workshops, is a much sought-after podcast celebrity, an author with his best-selling book titled “Moments Matter”, hosts his own radio show and podcast on Contact Talk Radio, iHeart Radio, Spotify and C-Suite Radio called “Moments Matter with Dave Sanderson” and hosts his daily flash briefing on Amazon Alexa titled, “Dave Sanderson: DECLASSIFIED” where Dave shares strategies on how to grow from your “personal plane crash” in life, known as PTGS (Post Traumatic Growth Syndrome). Dave is a faculty member with Dominique Wilkins, Don Barden, Brittany Tucker and Steve Nedvidek at the Leadership Mindset Series in Atlanta, GA, the first and only servant leadership coaching program in the United States.
