At Commvault GO 2017 both Sullenberger and Swan will speak about their unique personal experiences accomplishing remarkable things, how data played a key role, and will provide attendees with insight on how they can leverage their own data to unlock new opportunities and strive for competitive advantage.

Sullenberger earned international renown as the captain of the “Miracle on the Hudson,” when on January 15, 2009 he and his crew safely executed an emergency water landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on New York City’s Hudson River. Sullenberger is a safety expert, speaker, and author, and currently serves on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Advisory Committee for Automation in Transportation.

A polar explorer and environmentalist, Swan is the first man ever to walk unsupported to both the North and South Poles. His expedition in the South Pole was the inspiration for 2041, a company he founded dedicated to the preservation of the Antarctic. The mission of 2041 is to inspire, stimulate and connect organizations and communities who seek to protect our world and create a more sustainable, clean energy future.

Commvault GO celebrates the remarkable things global organizations are doing with data.
