About this Event

The first edition of GLL Summer Gathering is to take place in Vilnius on July 25. Let’s get curious about the world, let’s get curious about each other!

The long afternoon of extended networking and global experience sharing from our community and friends will turn into the curiosity rollercoaster.

By stepping away from the business as usual, we are going to tap into global trends, issues, events of witch Lithuania(ns) has been a part of. From there, we will explore possibilities to open more doors for Lithuania’s global presence.

What will start with sharing will turn into the big stage of conversation with all those who gathers at the artistic venue of the National Art Gallery with the view upon river Neris.

We are curious to know what you've been up to. Be part of it.

We are excited to announce some of the GLL members who will be sharing their stories.

- EINARAS VON GRAVROCK, Laureate of Global Lithuanian Awards 2018 and co-founder at Cujo AI, global cybersecurity company based in LA, USA. Einaras was the only Lithuanian invited to speak at World Economic Forum 2019 in Davos, representing Technology Pioneers and talking about global cybersecurity challenges. With Einaras we will discuss what Lithuania can do better to increase its stand in this global elite gathering.

- LINETA MIŠEIKYTĖ, film producer and Nominee of Global Lithuanian Awards 2016, with her latest gig in cinema-world HBO series “Chernobyl”, filmed in Lithuania. We are super curious to hear some insights from the backstage of this 15 million euro project as well as hear Lineta's thoughts about potential on Lithuanian film industry.

- JURGA ŽILINSKIENĖ, an entrepreneur and founder @ Guildhawk (previously Today Translations), among many other recognitions, was recently honored by Her Majesty The Queen with a Queen‘s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in recognition of her work‘s value in breaking down global barriers. Referring to Brexit, Jurga says that geopolitical situations will continue impacting businesses large and small, however our task is to find a way to build resilience. And offers a solution: it is ability to constantly evolve. We are looking forward hear more on that.
