"Engaging." "Powerful." "Authentic." "Knocked it out of the park." These are just a few examples of the effusive praise pouring in for Captain 'Sully' Sullenberger, now in high demand for audiences following the blockbuster movie release of SULLY. After a hugely impressive opening in the U.S., Captain Sullenberger joined Tom Hanks last month for the premiere of SULLY in London and Paris. SULLY has been nominated in four categories for the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s Critics’ Choice Awards, taking place this coming Sunday: Best Picture; Best Actor; Best Adapted Screenplay; and Best Editing.

Captain Sullenberger has dazzled the many groups that have scheduled him this fall. We received "A BIG THANK YOU!!" following Captain Sullenberger's presentation at a global business advisory firm's U.S. conference: "It was a great event and all our guests had a terrific time." Most recently, Captain Sullenberger engaged attendees at the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association's National RV Trade Show to great acclaim: "Capt. Sully did a tremendous job addressing the nearly 1,300 attendees at our industry's Outlook breakfast. His message about preparedness, and details, and the important role they play in decision making really resonated with our audience. His story-telling abilities kept the audience engaged, and his message about doing the right thing and the difference it can make was a thought-provoking reminder to everyone in the room — that what each of us does and how each of us acts, matters. Everyone was talking about his presentation." Next week, he will surprise attendees as their guest speaker for a large organization's end-of-year meeting.
