The day of GLL Forum and Awards has all you need for a break of the New Year – the overview and appreciation of the year that passed, the connections and the resolutions for the future, and the inspiring crowd to celebrate it all.
More than 250 guests, partners, and friends from 22 countries of 4 continents, first, shook the National Library with talks and discussions on strategic communication, business advisory as well as global brain map of Lithuania. Then, the energetic crowd filled the Presidential palace and the whole Vilnius with celebration of talent and commitment.

Once again, Forum of Global Professionals proved its reputation of a platform for meaningful connections – it brought together 250 global Lithuanians from 22 countries – from the USA to Hong Kong, from Australia to UAE and Norway. What they find and enjoy here is:

  • audience like themselves – curious, critical, challenging;
  • speakers like themselves – professional, eager to learn and share;
  • topics they all can offer creative and smart solutions to.  

GLL partner LRT Radio gave a comprehensive overview of the speakers, workshops and the audience. Spare some time to listen >> or read a short overview on media>>. Follow us on Facebook as we will be releasing more materials and insights from the Forum.   

GLL Talks | Vol.1

Rimvydas Baltaduonis | Economic Cost of Tolerance

Besides being engaged in many social initiatives and projects globally, Dr. Rimvydas Baltaduonis is pursuing an academic career and is a popular Economics professor at Gettysburg College (PA), currently conducting research at Columbia University (NY). During his presentation he highlighted scientific studies and shared his own observations about positive economic effects of embracing diversity and promoting inclusion in our workplaces, communities and societies. The younger generation of millenials increasingly stands out in their demands for social corporate responsibility and therefore, forward looking businesses are becoming very mindful about environmental, social and governance aspects of their enterprises.  

Kotryna Stankutė Jaščemskienė | Philanthropy in Lithuania

After six years of building the network of global Lithuanians, Kotryna Stankutė moved on to develop and campaign for building the sharing culture in the society of global Lithuanians. She devoted her speech to the overview of Lithuanian philanthropical development over last few decades and presented the variety of ways it has been done locally and globally.  She noticed that according to surveys Lithuanians tend to fund and support discreetly.

In her sincere belief, just by talking more about emerging initiatives as Marius Jakulis Jason Fondas more people might get encouraged and inspired for good deeds.
