Dave Sanderson is an inspirational survivor, speaker, author, and the President of Dave Sanderson Speaks International, based out of Charlotte, NC.

On January 15, 2009, Dave Sanderson was one of the last passenger off the plane that crashed into the Hudson River, best known as “The Miracle on the Hudson”.  Dave was largely responsible for the well-being and safety of others that fateful day, risking his own life in frigid water to help other passengers off the plane. Dave emerged from the wreckage determined to encourage others to do the right thing.

Dave’s mission is to impact people’s lives by sharing and teaching the strategies he learned and implemented on how to grow from traumatic life experiences that everyone will face one day and that he calls “life’s personal plane crashes”.  Dave shares 12 resources as a faculty member with Dominique Wilkins, Don Barden, Brittany Tucker and Steve Nedvidek at the Leadership Mindset Series, the first and only servant leadership coaching program designed to help business leaders around the world to build a happier, more-productive business with a better bottom line.

In addition to speaking and training, Dave conducts workshops; is a much sought-after podcast celebrity; is the author of the best-selling book, “Moments Matter”; hosts his own radio show on Contact Talk Radio and C-Suite Radio called “Moments Matter with Dave Sanderson”; and hosts a daily flash briefing on Amazon Alexa titled, “Dave Sanderson: DECLASSIFIED.”

Dave, his wife Terri, and their four children reside in Charlotte, NC.
