The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award

Created in 1972 as a tribute to Madame Clicquot, the award champions successful business women who share the same qualities as her. Highly prized and sought after, it is the first international award created to recognise the contribution that women have made to business.

At its core, this award is about celebrating success. In addition to the below criteria, the panel of judges want to see how female leaders or founders of a business with a minimum of £15m revenue have been a catalyst for success both in their business as well as their effect on the wider world.

In order to be a Business Woman Award winner, the nominee will be primarily judged on the following criteria:

Entrepreneurship: The nominee needs to not only embrace an entrepreneurial spirit but also cultivate it within her organisation.

Leadership: The nominee needs to be the driving force of the company, taking bold decisions for its current and future success.

Role Model: The nominee needs to set an example within her company and wider society.
