We are excited to share WOW Chaplaincy is teaming up with 'Cuppa Life Cafe' for an inspiring peak into the world of pivoting a business during Covid to do good and bring joy to others. We hear from Luke Cook on our In The Spirit of Things Conversations.
Luke Cook (known as Cookie) is an ideas man, change maker, connector, communicator, founder, father, husband and believer that we should all live a life we want to be remembered for! He is also someone who has battled burnout, lost people close to him and reached rock bottom both financially and mentally!
With a 20 year career in advertising and media, Luke Cook (Known as Cookie) founded FUNLOCKA after reaching burnout in his career in 2016! FUNLOCKA (prior to COVID) was a technology and experience business which linked unique experiences to companies and their employees with the vision to unlock a world of happiness one smile at a time! With the world in pandemic lockdown FUNLOCKA revenue stopped overnight! An opportunity to continue providing happiness and inspiration to the community presented, and the door to the Cuppa of Life cafe opened.
