Who comes to Zokit. events?

Zokit. is for leaders and decision makers. Our membership includes business owners, professionals, directors, senior managers and executives.

As a member, do I have to attend every meeting in the Hub I join?

Not at all. Attendance in entirely up to you. If you wish, you can invite a substitute to join us in your place for meetings you can’t make but this is not mandatory

What are Zokit. networking events like?

All our meetings are informal and we alternate the style and format of meetings to keep things fresh. Please see individual event pages for the specific format.

How many people attend Zokit. meetings?

We generally get between 20 and 60 businesses at our meetings depending on the type of meeting. We like this variety – the smaller meetings give us chance for longer conversations and building deeper connections, the larger meetings open up lots of new contacts. Meetings have a mix of members and guests.

How do I benefit from the Zokit. Ambassador Services?

Zokit goes networking. A lot. We become ambassadors for our members, looking  for business opportunities for you even when you’re not present yourself!.

Am I tied into a long membership contract?

For members paying monthly, the minimum contract is 3 months. After this time, if you wish to leave, you just need to give us a month’s written notice. If you commit to a 12 month contract and pay your membership fee up front you get a discount on the membership fee.

What's the membership cost?

Membership starts from just £30 a month (if paying annually or £39 a month if on a monthly payment plan). The meeting fee for members is £10, which includes refreshments. Special events throughout the year are priced individually. More information on membership fees.

Can I try before becoming a member?

Yes, you can come along as a guest to try it out. The guest meeting fee is £15 for general networking and £20 for our Business Wisdom sessions. You can attend up to two times as a guest before making a decision to join.

How do I book to visit or join?

You can book as either a member or guest through our online booking system. To book a visit online, see our forthcoming events. Members are able to pay at the door by cash or card after confirming attendance by email / text or phone call. If you’d like to have a chat before you visit or you would like to join please call Neil on 07989440638 

Can I go to any event in South Wales or just events of the Hub I Join?

As long as you are mainly attending the meetings of your home Hub, you still have roaming rights to other Hubs.

As a loose guide you can attend any other Hub up to half as frequently as your home Hub. So, for example, if you are a member of Vale of Glamorgan Hub and you attend 4 times over 2 months, you can attend Swansea up to 2 times plus Cardiff up to 2 times plus Newport to Chepstow up to 2 times over the same period.

This gives you the best of both worlds: build strong working relationships in your home hub and access the wider Zokit network.

Are business categories restricted to one member per category in each Hub?

It’s all about balance here and depends on the size of the membership in that hub and the specific businesses involved. We aim to have a diverse range of business types at each meeting.

Membership is by application. If on application we feel that there would be too much similarity with an existing business member in that Hub we may suggest joining a nearby Hub or invite you to join our waiting list. Quite often, we have businesses who look similar (on the face of it) in the same Hub as they have developed an effective cross-referral arrangement or may have slightly different sub specialties / markets. We look at every application on a case by case basis so please do contact us if you have any questions.

Can I join more than one Hub?

Yes! You have roaming rights across South Wales no matter which hub you join (see relevant question above for details) but if you want to be the Go To business in more than one hub, benefit from the ambassadorship of more than one Network Leader, have your online profile on more than one hub page and attend unrestricted events in more than one hub, then you can apply to as many hubs as you wish (where there is an opening for your field of business).
