Most people in the lima area tend to take their dreams and implement them into other cities. Our mission at Dream On:Lima is to reverse this by hosting a conference with people who are big hitters in the area of entrepreneurship, customer service, management, and all other aspects of business. These big hitters paired with local entrepreneurs that have impacted this city for the last couple decades, will prove you don't have to leave Lima to be a success story. The fact that Lima is one of the most cost effective cities in the USA, makes sense for businesses/individuals to stay here and make their dollars go farther. By joining forces with dream on, your company will be highlighted and marketed as a staple of this movement.
Dream On:Lima will use keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and local business owners who have invested their careers into this city. This one day experience will draw out the brilliance and creativity inside your employees and upper level management, and help them function at a higher level for years to come.
