How we developed leaders who can drive bold innovation

BNP Paribas partnered with Common Purpose to create Connections—an experiential learning programme for its senior leaders. The aim of the programme is to help leaders cross boundaries to become better equipped to drive bold innovation.

Connections provided an opportunity for BNP Paribas employees to engage with senior leaders from a range of cross-sector organizations in Hong Kong and Singapore. The programme provided participants with insights into building an innovative mindset by learning from organizations operating within this crucial hub.

“BNP Paribas is undergoing transformation and change as we march towards our 2020 ambitions. The need to culturally transform and prepare our employees is critical for connectivity and innovation in this journey.

“Connections allows our leaders to have a first-hand exposure through real-life examples and immersions with industry leaders and organizations who have experienced disruption or are disrupting. The learning on Cultural Intelligence and the benefits of collaborations are absolutely invaluable in building our bank for the future. We believe this programme has opened new avenues in the minds of our people to be able to re-think both the present and the future.”
