I always kind of envied his stories. So that was number one. And number two, 911 happened when I was a sophomore in high school. And then that was pretty formative for a lot of people my age."(12:30) "(Luke's wife) Chelsea worked in back shop and I worked in the newsroom. So we crossed paths every now and then ... But then randomly we had a class together, and ironically enough the name of the class was Marriage and Family."(15:40) "I think Caleb Farley is the best corner in this draft."(18:58) "It just remains to be seen whether the Saints think they can trust (Zach Baun) as an off-ball linebacker." (23:49) "Everybody should pause this podcast now and go watch like a 5-minute Rondale Moore highlight tape. The guy is just so much fun to watch with the ball in his hands."(30:29) "Because both Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill are going to be free agents next year, there's no guarantee that either of those guys are going to pan out in this offense. And I think it'd be smart enough to just like, always be keeping their options open with the quarterback position - the Saints should be example number one for how important that position is."(32:28) Random RoundCONNECT WITH US / LINKS MENTIONEDSaints beat writer mock draft 2.0: Luke Johnson’s picksSaints have 8 picks in the NFL Draft - Who are the best ever selected in those spots?Luke Johnson TwitterRachel Jones TwitterRachel Jones InstagramSUBSCRIBE, RATE AND REVIEW!“Black and Gold Rush is awesome and authentic, and I can’t wait for more.” <--- If that sounds like you, please rate and review my show!---> Scroll to the bottom on Apple Podcasts, tap to rate out of 5 stars, and select “Write a Review.” Then let me know what you loved most about the episode!

Episode 33: Luke Johnson, General Manager, AJ Hackett, Singapore

The WiT Podcast

In this podcast we learn how Luke Johnson, General Manager of AJ Hackett, Singapore, has taken lessons from adventure sports in dealing with Covid, why his jump masters would make the best coaches in resilience and how the park helped thousands of Singaporeans destress from the confines of living on a small island with closed borders. In the process, Johnson has also learnt what matters most to Singaporeans – beyond the thrills, yes, it’s about the food – and how AJ Hackett worldwide is rebranding itself into an experience that’s beyond the jumping and swinging, and it’s just about being there, being part of the fun. And it’s also about learning what goes on behind the scenes with its new “Bouncing Back To Life” insider tour, which is part of a wider Sentosa initiative to launch Insider Tours across the island (the tours are yet to be launched).

Luke Johnson - We Are The Economy: Why A Second Lockdown Will Drive The UK To An Economic Disaster

He is a man with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the world of business and investment that has seen him hold the position of Chairman at Channel 4, the Royal Society of Arts and the Pizza Express chain. He is the former owner The Ivy and had interests in Giraffe, Belgo, founding the hugely popular Strada restaurant chain. Currently, the Chairman of equity firm Risk Capital Partners and the Brighton Pier Group, Luke Johnson’s resume and achievements are wide-ranging and all-encompassing. Like so many business leaders and entrepreneurs, Luke has concerned in recent months about the economic devastation caused by the unproven lockdown measures, highlighting the collateral damage to our social, physical and mental health, and the need to look for alternative solutions. These concerns focus on the as yet unproven policy of single measure lockdowns, a policy that has seen hundreds of thousands of people left unemployed and the misuse of data for the justification of actions and the relentless scaremongering by the mainstream media that has left “the nation depressed, frightened, poorer, anti-social, lonely, less fit, hypochondriacs, anxious and heavily indebted.” By highlighting what Luke calls Covid Monomania – the government’s obsessive preoccupation with death rates, protecting the NHS and their relentless attempts to reinforce this peril through data that is misused and appropriated, he has brought attention for the need to consider innovative policies and solutions. This includes solutions which protect the vulnerable and elderly but allow younger people, those with families that need feeding, small business owners on the brink of collapse, to take what many consider a wholly proportionate risk by going about their daily lives, and thus enabling our demoralised economy. Espousing a view which promotes exercise, healthy eating, positive habits and above all our duty to protect those who can’t readily protect themselves, Luke proposes seeking opportunity and chance in a changing marketplace, encouraging ways to improve ourselves, our work, our life in this most fallow period. We must consider our options, call for transparency and be clear that those of us who can, are ready to step forward and be counted. Let’s not allow this fear to consume us and seep further into our consciousness. After all, as Luke points out, a continued lockdown over Christmas would destroy hospitality and retail and “kill at least 500,000 more jobs.”
