Group 147
On January 15, 2009, Dave was the last passenger off the plane that crashed into the Hudson River, best known as The Miracle on the Hudson, considered the most successful ditching in aviation history. He risked his own life in the frigid water and was able to use the skills and resources he learned throughout his life to not only survive but help others. He emerged from the wreckage that day with a new mission: to encourage others to do the right thing when faced with a life-changing decision.

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 profounding 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.

Private Mentorship

US Airways flight 1549 was just six minutes long. One of the
things I realized after I had a chance to reflect on that day was in
those six minutes; I answered six questions that helped me
survive and help others.

Private Mentorship


The Voice of Personal Leadership Mastermind is exclusively for
all thought leaders leading or wanting to lead and extend the
mastermind principle for others. Our approach is outlined and
defined as the “coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit
of harmony, to attain a definite purpose.”

Team Coaching

Leadership coaching doesn’t have to be a one-on-one process.
Just like that day on the plane, 155 people had to come together
as a team to achieve something that never had been achieved
before. Like coaching a sports team, coaching a team involves
honing individual skills by leveraging the coach’s knowledge and
other team members.
