Winchester, VA – The Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival® is pleased to announce that Dave Sanderson will speak at the Valley Health Business at the Bloom event on April 28, 2021 at the Frederick County Fairgrounds. Sanderson is visiting his hometown today to launch his new book, God Gives You The Lesson When You Are Ready, and as part of his book launch, we are excited to introduce Dave Sanderson as our guest speaker for next year’s 94th Festival.
On January 15, 2009, Sanderson had a life-changing experience onboard US Airways Flight 1549 when the flight crashed into the Hudson River en route from New York City to Charlotte, NC, often referred to as “The Miracle on the Hudson.” Dave’s book, Moments Matter, details the lessons learned from the Miracle on the Hudson and how one defining moment can create a lifetime of purpose so you can create your own flight plan for your future!

In 2018, Sanderson was named one of the top 100 Leadership Speakers by Inc.com. Dave is a sought-after International speaker, he works with established and emerging leaders to help them find their DISTINCT ADVANTAGE, aligning with their purpose through employing their personal leadership skills, igniting their performance through focused execution, resourcefulness and gratitude.
Dave hosts a daily show on the Alexa platform on Amazon through his Daily Flash Briefing, “Voice of Personal Leadership,” sharing lessons and strategies on personal leadership he has learned and employs so others can be inspired to utilize their personal leadership skills to become the servant leader we all are meant to be.
Sanderson is a faculty member with Dominique Wilkins, Don Barden, Brittany Tucker and Steve Nedvidek at the Leadership Mindset Series based in Atlanta, GA. Dave knows that a true leader understands that support from others can provide the tools needed to be an even stronger role model. He has recently rolled out an online course, Cultivating Personal Leadership, in which Dave shares the best strategies he has learned from some of the greatest leaders he personally met, studied under, and implemented in his life to become a top producer, sought out speaker, author, and entrepreneur.
