Dave Sanderson, Keynote Speaker
Dave Sanderson is an inspirational survivor, speaker, and author. 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. 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. You will hear from his perspective, the role the Red Cross played and how that moment transformed his thinking. Today, Sanderson travels the country—often with the Red Cross blanket the volunteer gave him when he reached the shore—motivating and mentoring others on how they can make an impact on their own lives, the lives of others and the world.
