David SandersonMy guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who may not be well known, but the situation that he found himself  certainly is.

He is an inspirational survivor, speaker, and author and part of the miracle that occurred back in 2009.

When travelling back on a normal commuter flight for his job as an application sales manager for Oracle he found himself in a situation that most people would wish that they weren’t in. 

However our guest reviewed it in a very different manner. 

When US Airways Flight 1549, or “The Miracle on the Hudson,” ditched into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, he 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


Despite the hazards to himself, he thought only of helping others and emerged from the wreckage with a mission: to encourage others to do the right thing.

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.

So of course the miracle was that every single person survived, so would he feel differently operating in this new field if the result was tragic against miraculous? 

And does he feel that the majority people in life need something to shake them from the routine and comfortable zones that we all live in to really get the future they deserve?

Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Dave Sanderson
