Cariann Emanuelli and her team at Wize VA have picked up the first ever Welsh ICE Business of the Year Award at the Caerphilly Business Forum Awards!

It was fourth time lucky for the Wize VA team who have been shortlisted as finalists at the Caerphilly Business Forum Awards for the last four years in a row across different categories. Cariann said:

“Winning this award was amazing! We have had a great 5 years at ICE so far and look forward to continuing to grow our business in this great community”.


Wize VA

Wize is a VA service with a difference. Since its conception in 2012, Wize has grown in size to a team of six. What sets Wize apart from other VA’s that work alone with specific skills is that we have a dedicated team with a diverse range of expertise ready to help clients with any admin task or problem they may have. These skills range from call answering, bookkeeping, PA services and more. We benefit from working in a fully supported innovation centre so are surrounded by a range of experts from different fields every day and are prepared to work off site if needed.

Also shortlisted for the award were Datris, Service Tracker and WRi. The Welsh ICE award was presented by Community Manager, Jamie McGowan who said:

“We’ve always loved working hand in hand with Wize and it has been fantastic to see them grow over the years. To see an independent panel of judges recognise this achievement is really special. We know 2018 is going to be an amazing year for them!”


Wize VA have already been making headlines in Wales this year. Cariann was named as one of Wales Online’s 35 under 35, was highlighted as a Rising Star in Business Insider and even had a feature on her home in the Western Mail.

We’re looking forward to seeing what comes next!
