UK Enterprise Awards: scam?
I've received a couple of emails saying I've been nominated for a UK Enterprise Award. Anyone familiar with them? Are they a scam?
They have a website, and to my surprise, a phone answered by a human being. Said human being confirmed that there are no fees associated with nomination, entry, or winning. I have to cough up if I want to buy one of their magazine packages, but they also have free packages for winners. Couldn't even see the usual "and your company's table at the swanky award ceremony will only cost £2k".
No idea who would have nominated me. I don't do any advertising, marketing, or PR, so all of my business is through recommendations and word of mouth. Makes the nomination all the more mysterious.
Can anyone please shed any light?
PS: I was delighted to buy two books recently, and realise both are by Forum members! David Cotton's excellent book on creativity exercises, and Nikki Highmore's book on facilitating workshops. No vested interests on my part; just smiled when I realised I know the authors : )
