GLL Forum 2019

Listen to GLL Forum 2019 on LRT Radio

Once again Forum of Global Professionals suggested for contemplation the topics and angles that inspire to take initiative in drawing your own boxes for thinking out of them. They included but were not limited to:

  • Appreciation of diversity 
  • Singing the ecology
  • Learning philanthropy
  • Making science hot and trendy 
  • Leading global robotics from a small town

We believe that makes this Forum stand out and lead! Listen to some of our community members speak on LRT Radio HERE >>

GLL Talks | On a Mission to Make Science Hot

At Global Lithuanian Awards 2018EIVANAS MASKVYTIS was awarded in the category of Global Experience for Local Change as a global professional who came back from Swedish Ericsson to little town Šilutė with the dream to create global opportunities for local young talent to join the world of robotics. What started as a self-made DIY class called Tavo Robotas has been transforming into a growing community of mechatronics engineers studying in foreign universities and engaging in international projects. Even in his wildest dreams, Eivanas could not imagine some of the present developments of Tavo Robotas but with generous support of science philanthropist Arvydas Janulaitis it rocks the world.

Marius Jason Jakulis | For Investments into the Future

GLL is proud to be among the first to pay respect to numerous deeds of investor, innovator and philanthropist MARIUS JAKULIS JASON.  He came back from the USA in the early 90s. First, he brought modern practices to very young Lithuanian copyright law. Then, he put Vilnius on the global maps of Radisson and Kempinski hotel locations. Finally, he is among the first in the country to build and develop philanthropical traditions through MJJ FONDAS meant to enable young science researchers and professors to work in Lithuania, to issue grants to young talents for their global studies, as well as finance innovative science startups.

BERLIN | Forum Lithuanian Professionals in Germany

On January 25, 2020, Forum of Lithuanian Professionals in Germany, organised by joint efforts of LEO in Berlin and GLL, brought together as many as 40 people from 8 German cities to Berlin. They devoted their Saturday to expand their professional and personal contact base, learn Lithuanian news, establish and strengthen professional ties with Lithuania as well as get inspired for the foundation of clubs in their own cities.
Nicely, the outcome of this Forum resembles the take-outs of the Stockholm meeting of Nordic clubs which took place last November: 

  1. Joint efforts make greater impact.
  2. Competence map of Lithuanian global minds – a necessity and a primary objective. 
  3. Cross-border networking – more possibilities for professional growth.
  4. Youth and business mentorship – meaningful bond with Lithuania.
