Dear Globals Around the World,

We couldn't be more proud that GLL – Network of Global Lithuanian professionals – has grown into the community of almost 1300 inspiring and proactive people. Such results couldn't have been achieved without friendly recommendations and live meetings. We would be more than grateful if you could make a personal intro or share the idea and deeds of GLL with your own professional networks and invite them to join the community of doers for Lithuania. Let's make the change together!
