Bonnie Chan-Woo, Chairperson & CEO of Icicle Group Holdings Limited ("Icicle Group"), has been announced Hong Kong’s 2018 Veuve Clicquot Business Woman Award winner at a chic ceremony at WooBar in W Hong Kong recently.
The Award was first initiated in 1972 to honour and sustain the legacy of Madame Clicquot – regarded as the world’s first female entrepreneur. It is awarded to those who share the same qualities: an enterprising spirit, with the courage and the determination necessary to accomplish her business goals.
The Hong Kong Award was launched at Hong Kong’s Women of Wine Festival (WoW) in March this year. Hong Kong’s renowned female leaders, entrepreneurs, socialites, and influencers glammed up for the glamourous Awards Ceremony.
