He serves as the CBS News Aviation and Safety Expert, and is the founder and CEO of Safety Reliability Methods, Inc., a company dedicated to management, safety, performance and reliability consulting.

He will share details from the 208 seconds that put his career on the line. Sullenberger will show how preparation, training and leadership makes a difference when confronted with a challenge. His life-long pursuit of learning and investing in himself shows the importance of education and preparedness, and illustrates that true leaders must lead by example.
