BNP Paribas is a global banking and financial services institution, operating in 84 countries with over 200,000 employees.


BNP Paribas wanted to create a suite of graduate programmes to challenge, develop and engage their graduates at particular points in their career with the Bank.


Impact devised a programme that linked the graduates with BNP Paribas’ existing CSR partner; a charity who work on social, economic and environmental projects in London.

The graduates were challenged to devise a creative solution for a real task as set out by the charity. Towards the end of programme, BNP Paribas wanted to bring the class of graduates back together for a high-energy event, with real outcomes.

This event was designed to have global reach. Since the first successful programme in the English Lake District, Impact has delivered this programme in Asia & Europe.


Throughout the suite of programmes, the graduates’ have used personal experiences, feedback from their peers, managers and Impact facilitators to take ownership of their own action-learning path.
