If you’d like to launch a Zokit Home Hub in your neighbourhood, please get in touch for more information.

Who comes to Zokit events?

Zokit is for leaders and decision makers. Our membership includes business owners, professionals, directors, senior managers and executives from a range of sectors

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

Not at all. Attendance in entirely up to you thought we suggest attending at least once a month. If you wish, you can invite a substitute to attend in your place for meetings you can’t make but this is not mandatory.

What are Zokit 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 10 and 50 businesses at our regular 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. Our conference and expo attract hundreds of businesses.

Am I tied into a long membership contract?

For members paying monthly on ONLINE and HOME HUB memberships, the minimum contract is 3 months. After this time, if you wish to leave, you just need to let us know and we’ll cancel your membership immediately. If you commit to a 12 month contract and pay your membership fee up front you get a discount on the membership fee.

For ZENITH level there is a 12 month membership contract.

For 5 STAR level the contract is for 6 meetings (usually a month apart).

For SIGNATURE business growth coaching, each contract is individual.

 

What's the membership cost?

This depends on the membership level. Membership fees start from £29/month up to over £390/monthdepending on the level of support you’re looking for.

See our pricing on the Join page here.

 

Can I try before becoming a member?

Yes, you can come along once to one of our  hub meetings as a guest to try it out before making a decision to join.

How do I book to visit or join?

You can book as a guest through our online booking system (we use EventBrite). To book a visit online, see our forthcoming events. If you’d like to have a chat before you visit or you would like to go ahead and join straight away please call the hub leader using the contact details in the EventBrite event description or our main office on 02921 111 232. You can also join online here. 

Can I go to any event or just the Home Hub I join?

For HOME HUB and above members, as long as you’re attending more meetings of your home Hub than any other single hub, you have roaming rights to the other Hubs (location based and online). This gives you the best of both worlds: build strong working relationships in your home hub and access the wider Zokit network. If you find a different hub suits your needs more, you can apply to transfer. ONLINE members can only access the Online Networking & Know-how events.[/toggle]

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. Modern business doesn’t often fit into neat categories and we find limiting categories limits the business opportunities for you. We aim to have a diverse range of business types at each meeting and work with the current home hub membership to continually grow and evolve the hub in the most useful way. The best way to find out more is to attend the hub as a guest. A warm welcome awaits all.

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.

If you are joining more for the digital marketing benefits than the face to face regular networking events, you can join centrally without being linked to a local hub or try the online membership.

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 active advocacy of more than one Hub Leader and attend unrestricted events in more than one hub, then you can apply to as many hubs as you wish (where there is space).
