Under most circumstances, one would be hard-pressed to find serious, high-powered businesswomen being associated with bottles of bubbly in the boardroom. After all, being linked to a champagne brand is usually more a comment on one's social life than business success. Unless that woman happens to be the winner of the Veuve Clicquot-sponsored Business Woman of the Year Award. Nominations are now open for this year's award. The event has been going since 1972 and this will be the second consecutive year it has been presented in Hong Kong. Entry is open to any Hong Kong-based businesswoman, whether an individual entrepreneur or employee. Nomination forms, to be lodged by February 18, can be found at www.clicquot-asia.com/award/ . CLP managing director Betty Yuen won last year. CitySeen supposes that it's thanks to her that we don't have to drink in the dark.
