    I suppose I should be making a fuss.

    We have been shortlisted in the East Midlands Regional Finals for the
    http://www.ecommerce-awards.co.uk
    under three categories: Broadband, E Trading and E Business.

    Wish us luck at the Gala Award Ceremony on September 16th.

    We're really chuffed to have been short listed as it is nice to have your hard work recognised. We are being filmed for the Award Ceremony tomorrow - yikes, I'll have to tidy my desk.

    Ha Ha ... I'll see you there!!! So have we ;) (well only for 2 categories but I don't know which!)
    In fact you are only 10 minutes down the road from me so perhaps we should meet. Did you have the film guy round yesterday?

    Hi,

    Filming was weird, someone poking a camera over your shoulder every time you looked likely to do something interesting.

    27 companies are shortlisted in the East Midlands Region - there are 5 categories, the three we are in, mentioned in my first post, plus E-Start Up and Teleworking.

    Some categories have more nominees than others. 8 are up for one category, 3 for another but I don't know which.

    There are 12 regions.

    I don't know any of the other nominated companies, except I now know Ozzy is in it.

    Apparantly the awards had thousands of entries but I expect many of them were like my efforts last year - very desultry. This year I really tried to fill out the forms properly and spent ages on them. Yippee, it's paid off.

    Good luck to all nominated people.

    Yes Gary, I was fortunate enough to make the National Business Awards finals, but that is as far as I got - still cool though!

    The guy filming even filmed me riding up and down the road on my new motorbike ;) I guess because my business is so automated there wasn't actually a lot of "work" to film - he he

    There is also The Growing Business Awards which close at the end of September. Remember you have to be in it to win it!

    Maybe its only the East of England that are filming the finalists, as each region is run separately. Never mind, you didn't miss out on much ;-)

    Hi Ozzy,

    Perhaps they are spending all our budget on champagne and truffles.

    I must say I'm very excited about it, first time and all that. It's really great to have been shortlisted. How about you?

    Regards,
    Simon

    We were going to go up, grab a hotel and make a proper night of it but I can't get anyone to look after the (4) kids overnight so it'll be a long, sorry drive back when we don't actually pick up one of the gongs.

    I can't for the life of me think why we are under 'Best use of Broadband' when all we have ever done is optimise for 56K.

    Good luck with yours, Taff.

    Ozzy, do you know if they have announced the shortlisted people for the National Innovation part of the E Commerce awards?

    Mobile & Wireless Technology
    Advanced Supply Chain Integration
    Best Rural E-Business & Community

    I rather thought we had a chance in the latter two.

    Hi Taff,
    I can't speak for the Ecom awards as never been up for these before, and only once for the National Business but they were a great night out. We stayed at the hotel, very posh ;)
    It's worth staying away from the night to really enjoy it if you can, but like SillyJokes my wife and I will be making the journey home that night as we will have to let Nana get home after baby sitting our 2 year old.

    As for shortlists ... not a ****y bird :( I know qf is up for two categories but don't know which two. The film guy knew but wouldn't tell me as its a secret so shouldn't have told you! :)

    When someone says they're not something they usually are, so I won't bother saying don't worry I'm not a psycopath.

    It'll be beers all round win, lose or draw if we get to London.

    Come on!
