The WiT Podcast
THE story of how AJ Hackett, which invented industrial bungy leaping 30 yrs in the past and has included thrills to the life of four million people today throughout the world, went from 5% domestic enterprise to 100% is an adventure in alone.
Visualize this. Youthful Australian man, who ran
the exact same park in Cairns, Australia, for approximately 20 decades, moved to Singapore
late 2019 to expose his relatives to a new globe of journey that awaited in
A couple of months right after, borders shut down and he
and family members are confined to a little island and not only that, he has to help save the
small business on Sentosa island from likely underneath. When 95% of your enterprise

“The minute I reduce my worry is the working day I will

In this dialogue,

Covid, why his bounce masters would make the very best coaches in resilience and how
the park served 1000’s of Singaporeans de-pressure from the confines of residing
on a smaller island with shut borders.

And oh of course, it’s also about studying what goes on at the rear of the scenes with
its new “Bouncing Back again To Life” insider tour, which is part of a broader Sentosa
initiative to start Insider Tours throughout the island.
The excursions are however to be introduced and it was excellent to get a sneak preview
from Luke – we definitely learnt a secret or two in the course of this podcast and it is
pretty much in your trousers.
