The bigger picture
We are BBN
Over a thousand B2B specialists – 27 countries – $135 million global billings – 300 clients in 23 different B2B sectors
BBN is a vibrant organisation, bursting with energy and enthusiasm for what we do. We’re driven by a passion for developing and sharing industry-leading processes, systems and intellectual property for the greater good. Our dynamic entrepreneurial spirit is infectious and inherent.
Working together, our combined advantage means we significantly influence what can be achieved when a business talks to another business. We’re proud to stand for full service capability; spanning strategy, creativity, technology and implementation. It’s not just brilliant, but also surprising.
We don’t approach B2B marketing in the same way our competitors do. We challenge the status quo and do it differently. In such a way that creates true differentiation. It’s not about breaking the convention for the sake of it: instead it’s about truly becoming a thought leader and offering B2B businesses a truly better solution so, like us, we invite you to consider B2B marketing in a fresh new way and realise that BBN is the smart choice.
Meet BBN owner-managers
BBN is a collaborative agency-owned organisation, with every agency-partner an equity shareholder – all sharing the same genuine passion for B2B. Our collective knowledge and understanding of communications in the sector is almost impossible to match.
