Miracle on the Hudson Survivor Dave Sanderson set to JOLT Ottawa and Kingston at TEDxQueensU

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - OTTAWA, Ontario - Jan 19, 2017 - As the old saying goes, ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’; and Dave Sanderson is proof of that mantra, having survived that frigid cold crash landing of US Airways flight 1549 into the Hudson River, and suffering from hypothermia that almost killed him as he raced to ensure that all his fellow passengers were off the plane before him.

A rough and tumble college athlete who became a Security consultant to Tony Robbins, Oracle and other major companies, Dave didn’t realize how events throughout his life would influence his perspective, culminating to define who he truly was in that one defining moment. And in that moment, he made a decision to play life stronger and bigger, rather than become fearful and broken; he likens to a jolt. He made a decision, a conviction to himself, that he would not be side-tracked by this event, rather use it to share what he learned during that fateful event. In doing so he has raised over 8 million dollars (USD) for the Red Cross through speaking engagements, flying weekly, if not daily, to destinations around North America.

He now brings his inspiring experience and outlook to TEDxQueensU in Kingston for their event on Sunday January 29th where he’ll be sharing the life-altering lessons he learned through his life or death experience.

JOLT—the title of his new talk—will be focusing on PTGS (Post Traumatic Growth Syndrome); a condition which tends to occur in five general areas and refers to positive psychological change experienced as a result of adversity and other challenges in order to rise to a higher level of functioning, a “if I lived through that, I can live through anything” mentality.

“I’m truly honored and excited to speak at TEDx at Queens University in Kingston” says Dave about his upcoming visit, “What I learned after the Miracle on the Hudson was how midlife “jolts” can either derail us or propel us into remaking our lives.  The goal of my TEDx talk is to reach a global audience who will resonate with my message and hopefully remember some of my learnings when they face their own “jolt” in life.”

TEDxQueensU 2017 is a full-day experience on Sunday, January 29th, 2017 committed to ideas worth spreading. As an independently organized event following the TED format, TEDxQueensU 2017 seeks to showcase speakers from the Queen’s University and Kingston communities who have a unique idea or story to share.

Dave will be available for on and off camera interviews in Ottawa – Friday, January 27th, and Kingston – Saturday, January 28th. For more information about Dave’s speaking events, his book Moments Matter, or for media requests, please contact:
