Olivia Wyrick

Director Operations and Aquatics, Qiddiya Water Theme Park
Since her beginnings as a lifeguard 25 years ago, Olivia has devoted her professional career to the waterpark industry and aquatic safety. In the years that followed, Olivia turned what was a seasonal lifeguard job into a full-time management job at her local hometown waterpark, took an opportunity to expand her knowledge, and gained experience in management and operation development roles having led a team of more than 400 colleagues abroad.

Landing in Dubai in late 2009, Olivia’s involvement in expanding waterparks such as Atlantis Dubai, Aquaventure Waterpark and now Qiddiya have evolved to a large degree. Incorporating world class waterslides with the adventures of white-water rafting and surfing waves in the desert, Olivia is looking forward to opening a world class water theme park for all of Saudi to enjoy.

Alongside Olivia’s vast operational experience, her passion for safety and aquatic risk management over the course of the past two decades has had an influential impact on the international training and development of lifeguards and aquatic professionals in the region.
