Products that could help motivate and inspire healthy, fun living. Quickly realizing we shared the same vision, we merged our enthusiasm, energy and skills to form Whiz Technology.

Sue Prentice Bio

Founder & Chairman

Having a full life in Africa, Europe and Australia, including many years spent enjoying the thrills of the wild savanna and farm life in Africa, is what made Sue a competent and dynamic achiever. With migration came lessons, challenges, highs and lows as well as multi-cultural encounters that contributed to Sue’s determination to make a difference. It is this willingness to savour life and living that defines who she is and has demonstrated her ability to problem solve. It’s only through drive and determination that we can succeed, it’s not luck that makes things happen in her opinion. Embracing the advances in science and technology in the fantastic times we live, she would like nothing better than for people to live a healthy, happy and free life, unburdened by what stops them from being their best. Whiz products are a vehicle to do just that and are symbolic of Sue’s keen interest in changing and enhancing lives. The journey and use of these products has helped her conquer her own personal mental barrier regards running, allowing her creativity to be released, and in turn being transformed into an enthusiastic promoter and regular user of her own brand. Sue is now a committed runner and takes every opportunity whilst exercising outdoors, to appreciate the natural beauty of her surroundings. This new addiction releases a positive energy that she channels into achieving her goals. Change your life too with Whiz today.
