Keynote Speaker Dave Sanderson

Brace for Impact

Ready to fly home after a quick business trip, Dave Sanderson settled into seat 15A.  Shortly after takeoff however, it was evident that something was wrong. Just moments later, the captain said on the intercom "This is your captain, brace for impact"

Three simple words that proclaimed to all 150 passengers on board US Airways Flight 1549 on that cold, crisp New York afternoon of January 15, 2009, that their plane was about to go down in the icy Hudson River.

Three simple words that churned up their fear that the next two minutes would be their final moments on earth and spurred their most heartfelt, spontaneous prayers.

We all know about the stunning tale of survival against all odds that followed.

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.

As 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 hazard to himself, Sanderson thought only of helping others in that moment and he emerged from the wreckage with a mission: to encourage others to do the right thing.

In this stirring presentation, Sanderson shares the story of Flight 1549, revealing the inner strength it took to make it through the day, and how teamwork, leadership, and state management can help overcome any obstacle.
