Exciting New Format for Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award

Exciting New Format for Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award

For immediate release

25th November 2010

Veuve Clicquot has announced a change in the format of the New Zealand Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award, which will move to a biennial event, with the next award ceremony held in 2012.

On alternative years, beginning in 2011, Veuve Clicquot will introduce an exciting addition to the award format, holding a Veuve Clicquot Business Women’s Forum.

The Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award recognises the extraordinary achievements of entrepreneurial business women; innovators, risk takers, leaders and visionaries, with a commitment to corporate social responsibility. Veuve Clicquot will continue to recognise and celebrate these qualities, as well as fostering and supporting business talent, by bringing established and emerging business women together in the new forum format.

Richard Yeomans, General Manager of Moët Hennessy New Zealand, says the change in format brings the New Zealand award in line with international practice and will strengthen what it offers the wider New Zealand Business community.

“New Zealand’s shift towards a biennial award is in keeping with a global trend of moving the award to a biennial format. Operating in 16 countries around the world, New Zealand has taken the lead from fellow committees who find the award operates highly successfully as a biennial competition. By extending the nomination cycle, nominees will have longer to prepare submissions, judges more time to consider nominations enabling them to find those extraordinary winners who inspire us with their success, leadership and values,” said Yeomans
“The forum will also provide a platform for past winners and judges of the award, alongside notable and aspiring business women to come together and share and grow their knowledge and wisdom in a creative, fun and inspiring environment,” he added
