The story of a Lion’s Dream come true
We all dream.
Small things, big things, easy things or things we could never achieve all by ourselves. And then, we look for partners in dreams. Many of us have nurtured a dream which, maybe, has grown with us.
For this, we created Lion’s Dream: the festival of dreams shared, voted and cheered, where more than 1 dream received support to come true! 10.000 Euros for the big winner and lots of other sponsorships for a list of inspiring dreams.
We challenged everyone in Publicis Groupe to surprise and inspire us with their personal dreams, non-work related, but more connected with who they are or aspire to be.
After giving dreams the creative form they wanted, participants submitted them in the festival and, at a first stage, a jury chose among the 140 submissions, 21 finalists.
Then, all colleagues were urged to get inspired by them and vote their favourites.
And this is how the winner of the 10.000 sponsorship was chosen!
Made of people who were or still are part of our group, who made their dreams come true and have further inspired others.

You’ve inspired us, so we want to create a dialogue of dreams. To show that dreams do not rely on position or status, but on courage and an open mind. Here are the dreams of all the leaders in the group, shared with you as a sign of recognition for the courage you’ve shown in opening your hearts to us. Discover them here.
To Be Continued
But we don’t think the dreaming is over. We’ve all discovered the power of dreaming together, of sharing our dreams and we have only just started believing in this again.
