It’s not often you are on an airplane and the captain comes onto the loudspeaker saying, “brace for impact.” But, when it does happen, it changes your perspective …
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, 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 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.”
