Veuve Clicquot seems to be everywhere on social media the past few years since they began working with influencers. Even though Veuve Clicquot has changed where and how they communicate, the brand does not deviate from its core values. Every two years, they sponsor the Business Woman Award. Madame Clicquot, who took over the family business after her husband’s death, was a pioneer in the industry by becoming one of the first women to run a champagne house. Having the guts, the vision and the desire to innovate, has resulted in her success. Today, the brand celebrates business women all over the world by organizing these awards in different countries. The Canadian Edition of the gala was held last month in Toronto, bringing together the best of Canadian Women’s entrepreneurship.
Some of the women selected this year included Stéphanie Émond, the woman behind the famous spa Balnea, located in Bromont, which brings several lifestyle and well-being projects under her umbrella; Sonia Strobel, co-founder of Skipper Otto’s Community Supported Fishery and Susan Niczowski, founder and president of Summerfresh. They are all passionate about their field and have one thing in common: they want to make a difference. What a wonderful way for a prestige brand like Veuve Clicquot to support corporate values and women.
The evening was filled with advice, touching moments and inspiring speeches. The winner of the 2018 edition is Claudia Sjoberg, founder and president of Pedalheads. A New Generation award was also given to Kiely Maclean, co-founder and president of RJ MacLean.
The key takeaways from the evening were what that there are more and more women who are daring to take their place as leaders in business. It is also important to listen to your inner voice and to create environments that change our vision of the world. We raise our glass, of Veuve Clicquot for celebrating these remarkable women!
