Veuve Clicquot has launched its quest to find the recipient of the 2019 Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award.
Nominations are open for all three award categories; the longstanding Business Woman Award, New Generation Award and Social Purpose Award.
The award, which counts Liv Garfield, CEO of Severn Trent, Anya Hindmarch MBE and Alison Brittain, CEO Whitbread as past winners, celebrates the success of businesswomen worldwide. It is awarded to those who share the same qualities as Madame Clicquot: her enterprising spirit, her courage and the determination necessary to accomplish her business goals.
Last year saw the second ever Veuve Clicquot Social Purpose Award awarded to Amanda Nevill CBE, CEO of the British Film Institute (BFI). In 2019, this award will again aim to celebrate businesswomen championing social purpose beyond their core business case. This award mirrors Madame Clicquot’s passion for creating and curating strong, long standing business relationships, loyalty, and a commitment to business beyond profit.
The Veuve Clicquot New Generation Award continues to be synonymous with unearthing and celebrating exciting new female talent in the UK. It recognises the success and vision of female entrepreneurs between the ages of 25 and 35, with the winner reflecting the core attributes that Madame Clicquot exhibited in her formative years, such as a fearless approach and innovative thinking to achieve her goals. Last year’s winner was Stephanie Alys, founder of MysteryVibe, who was recognised for her work leading a revolution in the sextech industry, breaking down barriers and social taboos.
Speaking about the awards, Julie Nollet, Marketing & Communications Director, Moët Hennessy UK, said, “We are so pleased to be opening up public nominations for this year’s Business Woman Awards.”
“Now in it’s 48th year, the awards celebrate ambitious women and their achievements, as well as shining a spotlight on them as role models to inspire the next generation of businesswomen.”
“Every year we ask the public to put forward those female business leaders who have inspired them; those who embody the trailblazing attitude and success that our founder, Madame Clicquot achieved in disrupting champagne production.”
The call for nominations for the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award, New Generation Award and Social Purpose Award acts as the starting point in the search for the best female business talent in the UK. This will result in up to three exceptional women being awarded at a prestigious event in London in May 2019.
