About this event

Limitless - Dream. Defy. Discover.
There is absolutely no bound to possibilities, opportunities, efforts and the level to which we can rise up. But at every step we need to stop accepting things the way they are and sail smoothly through the raging rapids. By mirroring yourself as these speakers, you would know how they discovered themselves and found their purpose in life. We all have a path to trace and a destination to reach. Don't forget to dream because it's all about beginning with the end in mind. We believe that this exhilarating event will trigger a spark of inspiration in you to probably create your own boulevard where no one walked, leaving your worthy footprints on the sands of time.
