About The Elle Boss Award

The Veuve Clicquot ELLE Boss Award has been created to showcase entrepreneurial spirit, leadership, creativity and determination and the search is now on for one woman who is redefining the world of business one decision at a time.

Using this powerful platform, and for the fourth year, Veuve Clicquot and ELLE magazine set out to celebrate women who have been in business for at least three years – women already demonstrating clear signs of success, and/or, exceptional corporate managerial skills and a social conscience.

Words of wisdom from Khanyi Dhlomo …
Q: Any words of wisdom for women thinking of entering the Veuve Clicquot ELLE Boss Award and for those wishing to nominate others?

A: Once again this year, we invite entries into the Veuve Clicquot ELLE Boss Award in two categories: entrepreneur and corporate. Women can either self-nominate, with a mentor or manager seconding their application, or be nominated, with their consent. It’s our chance to recognise and celebrate the exceptional talent we have in South Africa, showcase it to the world and to motivate and empower other amazing women.

We are looking for powerhouse South African businesswomen who are redefining the world of business one decision at a time. My advice to women wishing to enter would be: if you have what it takes in terms of spirit, leadership, creativity and determination, don’t hesitate. This journey will be a truly life-changing experience.
