Aspiring entrepreneurs will be fizzing with anticipation for the new event from this historic Champagne House.

Bold Conversations by Veuve Clicquot will present unique insight and frank discussion with a line-up of inspiring New Zealand women, in the stylishly intimate surrounds of recently-opened The Libraries at The Hotel Britomart.

Navigating the challenges of business and gender inequality, the panel discussion will be MCed by veteran broadcaster Carol Hirschfeld, who will lead a conversation that includes Veuve Clicquot's local community of inspiring leaders — women who embody Madame Clicquot’s pioneering entrepreneurial spirit.

Accompanying this line-up of talent at Bold Conversations by Veuve Clicquot, the event will also present Veuve Clicquot’s 2021 female entrepreneurship barometer. First launched as a global report in 2019, it measures both success and the barriers that prevent it (including discrimination and structural barriers). Notably, this year’s Veuve Clicquot Barometer of Female Entrepreneurship in Aotearoa will also include research from New Zealand — making its unveiling at the event an auspicious one.

It’s all inspiring and uplifting stuff, and alongside the privilege of hearing such insightful discussion, Bold Conversations by Veuve Clicquot also presents the opportunity to network (with complimentary Champagne in hand of course) and connect with a like-minded community of entrepreneurs.

Veuve Clicquot hopes to inspire more of Madame Clicquot’s trailblazing spirit, toast local success and encourage change, so it invited people to join the conversation at the ticketed event. Although tickets sold out in record time, keep an eye out for our take on the barometer research findings in the days after the Bold Conversations by Veuve Clicquot event.

Bold Conversations by Veuve Clicquot, August 10 6-8pm, The Libraries at The Hotel Britomart.
