Social media has become unmanageable…

Social media has become unmanageable…

The evolution of social media has transformed the way we interact with the world – time, money and distance are no longer a barrier for social connections. This rapid growth has not occurred problem free – social media has become increasingly complex to manage. However, we believe ‘WizPar’ is slightly different…

 

In the previous few decades we have witnessed a world becoming progressively globalised and complex, mostly thanks to technology. This has proven both positive, for example the exponential rise in cross-national communications and travel, and negative, such as perhaps the paralysing amount of information and choice we are now bombarded with.

Let WizPar help you make the most of your 2017…

Let WizPar help you make the most of your 2017…

I think we can all agree that the world has witnessed some astonishing changes in 2016, it has been a dynamic twelve months across the globe: Trump, Brexit, numerous celebrity deaths, middle Eastern conflicts, technological innovation and much, much more – 2016 has definitely not left us short of news to discuss.

Despite all the radical ongoings in the wider world, inside our humble WizPar laboratory the efforts to complete the perfect app continue to propel tirelessly onwards, brains furiously ticking over possible innovations, our mad tech scientists never leaving a glitch unattended. And how exciting 2016 has been…

Aside from the […] Read more

One month at WizPar…

One month at WizPar…

And here we are… four weeks in the world of tech and I am still alive – no massive tech meltdowns as of yet, no encounter with any fabled tech badboys i.e. the Terminator (I guess I’m only marginally happier than sad about not meeting the robo Arnie-T… he is a bit of a childhood hero to me).

Rather, the 4 weeks have actually been rather pleasant. The changes I have noticed are all positive and are all thanks to the generosity of WizPar; I now possess more WizPar merchandise, I have a generous array of biscuits to select from, and […] Read more

Office fun…

Office fun…

‘Work hard, play hard’… the popular mantra that decorates cultures across the world.

Here at the WizPar office we have obviously nailed the ‘work hard’ part of the deal (local rumour has it that we have never be seen outside WizPar HQ in daylight… similar to vampires maybe, but obviously less pale and ‘bitey’). However, we decided it was time to pay a little more attention to the ‘play hard’ side – we want to reward ourselves for the gruelling long hours we commit to making WizPar reach it’s full, beautiful potential. We decided WizPar needed a sharp injection […] Read more

WizPar Student Competition Winner…

WizPar Student Competition Winner…

Having had fun meeting students during the Cambridge University and Anglia Ruskin University Fresher’s Fairs, WizPar is now even more excited to announce the winner of our competition.

We are very grateful for so many students taking the time to participate – in total we collected a whopping 248 entries. Thank you to all for entering, but obviously there can only be ONE lucky winner.

Our co-founder, Peter Dawe (pictured above), was handed the responsibility of picking the winner out of a WizPar bag out of all those entries.

 

We know, the suspense is too much…

 

And the lucky winner was Haskan from […] Read more

WizPar & Me

WizPar & Me

Fate playing it’s dutiful role? A novel business romance? A match made in heaven? Possibly slight exaggerations, but my encounter with WizPar was a welcome turn of events; I was looking for an ambitious business to grow within, WizPar were looking for a fresh recruit with marketing experience – the rest, as they say, is history (well…one week old history).

…..

I was first introduced to WizPar through a friend and, after a brief introduction to the app, I agreed to help promote their brand at a Cambridge University freshers fair alongside Tarba. We spent two days conversing with […] Read more

A Warm Welcome….

A Warm Welcome….

An exciting announcement this week…WizPar are delighted to welcome the excellent ‘Ents24’ to the app!

Ents24 are renowned pioneers within the UK events industry. The company was founded in 1999 by three students from Bristol University who wanted to create a service providing people with the easiest possible way to locate events no matter where they lived or what they were into. Fast-forward seventeen years and Ents24 is now the UK’s largest guide to live entertainment.

Here at WizPar we believe Ents24 fit perfectly with our app’s aspirations; it is now possible to access our special Ents24 channel, providing access to their […] Read more
