“Madame Clicquot was one of the world’s first female entrepreneurs and even in the 19th Century, demonstrated tremendous business acumen, innovation and a desire to succeed. It is incredible to see that all of our nominees exhibit these same values over two hundred years later.”
The awards are held on May 9 in The Ballroom at Claridge’s. The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award nomination criteria are those ideals epitomised by Madam Clicquot: entrepreneurship, financial success, corporate social responsibility and acting as a role model.
