‘Miracle on the Hudson’ Survivor Dave Sanderson Will Be Keynote Speaker at SUBExcel 2018

US Airways Flight 1549, or “The Miracle on the Hudson,” survivor Dave Sanderson, an inspirational speaker and author, has been confirmed as ASA’s keynote speaker at SUBExcel 2018! Sanderson’s thoughts on leadership have made him an internationally sought-out speaker. When the flight ditched into the Hudson River on Jan. 15, 2009, 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. 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.
