The Hotline is Back – Get Free Advice from Industry Experts!

The annual Ukie Hotline is back and this year we have more companies involved than ever! The Hotline has been set up to allow you to get completely free advice from industry experts across various disciplines; PR, legal, recruitment, finance, business development and much more.

This initiative provides the perfect opportunity to take advantage of some completely free advice from companies within our membership pool. 

How does it work? 

Each day will see a different Ukie partner take to the phone and twitter to answer your questions, completely free of charge. 

When is this happening? 

The Ukie Hotline will commence on the 22nd of July and will last 3 weeks with a different partner taking part each day. You’ll be able to contact them between 10:00am and 16:00pm via phone. There will also be a 2-hour period each day in which each partner will be answering questions via the Ukie twitter page

How can I get my free advice? 

Phone

All experts will be available for free via the phone number listed on their pages. Please scroll down and click any of the linked partners to see their contact details. 

Twitter Takeover

Send your questions in to our twitter account (DM) between 14:00pm and 16:00pm on their given day. The expert will then respond to these tweets via our account. 

Email 

All participants emails are listed on their contact pages below. Feel free to email them whenever you would like to, not just during the Ukie Hotline. All experts are willing to answer your questions at any time.
