Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Wow! What a year it’s been at the WizPar HQ!

This week we started our own Christmas celebrations with a delicious 3 course meal at The Old Fire Engine Restaurant…  wondering how long the Christmas decorations would stay up in the office whilst we were out enjoying ourselves.

From all of us at the WizPar HQ, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and look forward to welcoming 2017.

Ho Ho Ho!

Tea and cake anyone?

Tea and cake anyone?

Back in October we ran a special competition at the Fresher’s fair in Cambridge. Our lucky winner – Haskan from Gonville & Caius College – has just sent us this mouth-watering picture.

It does look yummy Haskan! Thank you for making us all feel so hungry in the office! 

Watch out for our next competition in the new year!

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

And the nominations are…

And the nominations are…

There was an excited buzz in the office on hearing that we had made it to the short list for this year’s Cambridge News Top Innovation Awards. An honour to be standing alongside the cleverest companies from Cambridge’s cluster. Not only our very first award ceremony but it was being held at the prestigious and very beautiful Downing College.

The day started off at the Cambridge University Fresher’s Fair… mustn’t forget to mention the 6am start to face the A14 heading into Cambridge to setup the WizPar stall in time. Meeting lots of fresh faced students and telling them about our little […] Read more
