BNP Paribas — Sustainable Future Forum 2017 & 2018

Maximize organic impact in Asia Pacific through powerful social content

2018 update: professional influencers & training.

In 2018, we extended our collaboration with BNP Paribas with two new services on top of social media management and video production. For the 2018 Sustainable Future Forum, the BNP Paribas team came to us with the need to engage more audiences surrounding this major event. Part of the “earned” assets of a company, we activated professional KOLs, Influencers and leaders on LinkedIn and trained key employees that will attend to the SFF.

While challenging, the activation of professional KOLs on LinkedIn turned out to be a successful operation in the niche market of influencers in sustainability located in Singapore.

The training portion is a service that we grew in 2018 for different clients, and for BNP Paribas our team conducted 3 training sessions to over 50 collaborators in the APAC region.


In 2017, BNP Paribas leveraged their flagship brand event in Asia Pacific – the BNP Paribas WTA Finals. It is to highlight the BNP Paribas Sustainable Future Forum (SFF), a business conference that addresses sustainable business growth. DBL’s goal was to organically raise awareness of the two events and elevate the BNP Paribas brand as a bank leading sustainable economic development in APAC and beyond.


DBL created and executed an engaging, organic social media content strategy, tailored for the Asia Pacific market, on LinkedIn and Twitter. Video content was central to the social media strategy. DBL created a series of teasers leading up to the BNP Paribas WTA Finals as well as onsite videos during the two events. DBL also leveraged BNP Paribas’ existing assets to further maximise visibility and engagement. For instance, that includes working with brand ambassadors, keynote speakers, tennis celebrities, and employees.
