The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award has been celebrating exceptional women for the last 47 years (since 1972). With an Business Woman Award evening now held in 23 countries, the Award will open its doors in London on 23rd May 2019 at The Design Museum. Exclusive tickets for the evening will be available through application via Clos19.com for the very first time in the Award’s history.
The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award is the first and longest running international award, curating a network of the
most successful women in all aspects of business, mirroring Madame Clicquot’s own remarkable achievements.
Madame Clicquot, the legacy behind the iconic champagne house, was a businesswoman ahead of her time. An original trailblazer with an enterprising spirit, she demonstrated a unique determination in a time where very few women were at the forefront of business. Madame Clicquot created the first vintage in 1810 – an astonishing milestone in her era – and went on to continue her pioneering work, paving the way for future businesswomen.
Her innovative thinking and spirit encapsulate the meaning behind the Award’s three categories – The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award, New Generation Award and Social Purpose Award. These act as the starting point in the search for the best female business talent in the UK, which is curated by a panel of high profile achievers including Cassandra Stavrou, Founder of Propercorn, Vanessa Kingori, Publisher of British Vogue and Moira Benigson, Founder of The MBS Group.
The renowned Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award has previously honoured some of the UK’s most outstanding business women – from Liv Garfield, CEO at Severn Trent and formerly the FTSE 100’s youngest female CEO, to luxury fashion accessories designer Anya Hindmarch, to the renowned architect Dame Zaha Hadid.
Hosted by Veuve Clicquot CEO, Jean-Marc Gallot, this year marks a new format for the iconic event, with the panel of winners hosted through a new ‘‘in conversation’’ format. Guests of Veuve Clicquot will thus have the opportunity to inspire and be inspired on the evening with a line-up and gathering of remarkable business talents.
