From playing the game with my cousins, I learned at a young age how to assess risk and take the appropriate action if I wanted to win. The more risks I took, the better I got at assessing when and how to take it. That skill translated to January 15,2009, the Miracle on the Hudson.
Dave Sanderson: DeClassified- The Game of Risk
About the Author: Dave Sanderson
Dave Sanderson is an inspirational survivor, speaker and author. His thoughts on leadership have made him a nationally sought-out speaker. 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.
