„Labai sveikinu visus susirinkusius čia, į, mano manymu, labai perspektyvų ir prasmingą renginį. Tai – puiki starto aikštelė jauniems žmonėms pradėti savo karjerą. Kita vertus, jau įsitvirtinusiems klaipėdiečiams smagu pajausti jaunatvišką pulsą ir surasti būsimus kolegas, partnerius ar darbuotojus. Linkiu šiam renginiui pasiekti šių tikslų“, – „Kontaktų mainuose“ linkėjo Klaipėdos meras V.Grubliauskas.

„Vakaruose tokie renginiai labai populiarūs. Lietuvoje – tai naujas dalykas, bet manau, kad Lietuva tam jau pribrendusi, nes jaunimas važinėja, grįžta, ir mato, kaip kas vyksta kitur. Tokie susitikimai labai vertingi, ypač jaunimui“, – pasakojo renginio iniciatorius „HSBC Bank USA“ viceprezidentas Rokas Beresniovas. Read more.

Besibaigiant renginiui vienas iniciatorių, „HSBC Bank USA“ viceprezidentas Rokas Beresniovas sakė nė nespėjęs apsidairyti, nes nenutrūkstamai bendravo su dalyviais. Jis džiaugėsi, kad kontaktų mainai buvo sėkmingi, gautų vizitinių – apstu, o dalyviai vis pabrėžė, kad tokio pobūdžio renginiai šalyje ir naudingi, ir būtini. R.Beresniovas neslėpė turintis vilčių, kad kontaktų mainais Vilniuje, Kaune ir Klaipėdoje renginio tradicija nenutrūks.

„Aš pats gavau labai daug kontaktų. Netgi sutikau žmogų, kuris 6 mėnesiams vyks į Vašingtoną dirbti Federaliniame rezervų banke. Kadangi pats gyvenu Vašingtone, galėsime ten bendrauti, plėtoti idėjas. Apskritai buvo smagu matyti, kad kai kurie žmonės kruopščiai paruošė namų darbus ir atvyko į renginį su misija“, – pasakojo R.Beresniovas. Read more.

Apsimainė šimtais vizitinių kortelių

(Klaipedos Diena – Asta Dykoviene)

Renginį inicijavę JAV gyvenantys lietuviai – pianistas Edvinas Minkštimas ir „HSBC Bank USA“ viceprezidentas Rokas Beresniovas – siekė užsienyje paplitusią kontaktų mainų tradiciją perkelti ir į gimtąjį kraštą. Prieš renginį dar svarstę apie lietuvių nedrąsą kaip tautinį bruožą, iniciatoriai vis dėlto visuose trijuose renginiuose neatsigynė smalsių dalyvių ir išdalijo bene visas paruoštas vizitines korteles.

Lietuvoje pirmuosius žingsnius kontaktų mainų tradicijos link buvo nuspręsta skirti jaunimui, dar augantiems profesionalams. Taip buvo tikimasi paskatinti jaunimą drąsiau semtis patirties iš šalies verslo lyderių, atverti jam kelius dalytis užgimusiomis idėjomis, o galbūt net surasti potencialių darbdavių.

Prabilk apie savo idėjas garsiai!

(VDU Radijas)

Nors pagyvenę dėdės ir tetos pirštu grūmoja, kad emigruoti negerai, kad reikia mylėti savo kraštą, tačiau perspektyvus mūsų šalies jaunimas mąsto kitaip. Nėra ko slėpti, kad daugelis jų pakeliavę po margąjį pasaulį grįžta tik pažiūrėti į prieinamas (prieini, pasižiūri ir nueini) produktų kainas ir padūsavus grįžti atgal ten, kur laukia labiau nei tėvynėje, vis dėlto yra dalelė optimistų, kurie siekia įgyvendinti savo svetur gimusias idėjas čia, Lietuvoje. Su geranoriškomis mintimis, kaip pakelti jaunimo kvalifikacijos lygį šalyje ir išlaisvinti juos iš kompleksų gniaužtų kalbant su potencialiais darbdaviais, nors ir trumpam, bet iš JAV grįžta du lietuviai – pianistas Edvinas Minkštimas ir „HSBC Bank USA“ viceprezidentas Rokas Beresniovas.

Kontaktų mainai: kai susitinka žmonės ir idėjos

(Diena – Lina Mrazauskaitė)

R.Beresniovas pasakojo, kad kontaktų mainai yra Vakarų kultūrai būdingas renginys, o Lietuvoje jo tradicijų dar nėra. Anot pašnekovo, svetur žmonės jau žino tokių renginių vertę, todėl jie yra populiarūs ir jų poreikis kyla natūraliai: „Vakaruose kontaktų mainų renginiai yra netgi susiskirstę pagal sritis. Lietuvoje esame buvę keliuose tokio pobūdžio renginiuose, tačiau matyti, kad šalyje dar nėra kontaktų mainų kultūros, o žmonės į juos ateina pasikalbėti su keliais pažįstamais.“ Read more.

Georgetown businesses prepare for vote

(Georgetown Dish)

In 2012, legislation will be the number one-priority for the GBA because of the need to reestablish a strong lobbying organization for local interests. We will also continue collaborating with other Georgetown groups—indeed such cooperation is currently underway—to develop ideas about how to make Georgetown the most competitive shopping destination in Washington, D.C. while also respecting the needs of local residents.

Additionally, we will continue to build on the momentum already achieved by GBA in reaching out to new members, supporting the varied needs of our current members, and developing a stronger social media presence online. We also plan to continue streamlining GBA operations to ensure that processes are more efficient for our members. For example, next year we hope to implement an automated membership management system that will make it easier for members to pay their dues online. Finally, because networking is one of the most important activities for GBA members, we will continue to host a variety of our most popular activities, including new “members only” events.

I am proud to have been a part of such exciting developments with GBA, and I can’t wait to see what the New Year brings. Thank you for your ongoing leadership and participation in this important endeavor for our community and our nation’s capital. Read more.

Georgetown Business Association VP Optimistic Entering New Year

(Channel 9 – Simon Landau)

“The main challenge facing Georgetown businesses right now is diminished cash flow due to declining sales,” Said Rokas Beresniovas, the Vice President of the Georgetown Business Association. “In some ways, this economic downturn has brought business owners together to form groups and business forums to help strategize how to remain competitive in this kind of market. But practically, some businesses still could not make it.”

The results are evident, as boarded-up storefronts continue to appear in a community that’s used to filling space with posh shops and chic, pricey restaurants.

“In the past year, about 20 businesses closed their doors in Georgetown,” Beresniovas said. “Other businesses are behind on their rent, running sales and specials, trying to renegotiate their leases and rents with their landlords. Businesses are all having to be leaner and meaner, doing more with less.” Read more.

Taking Georgetown’s pulse in the mayoral election

(Georgetown Dish – Molly Redden)

Take Rokas Beresniovas, a Georgetown-based Vice President with Wells Fargo who is active in the area’s business community. Beresniovas has said he is not impressed with Fenty’s campaign. An organization in which he is active, the Georgetown Business Association recently released a statement warning that without the mayor’s presence at a candidate forum, the GBA would have a hard time deciding who to endorse in the race. His read on Georgetown is that there are voters in both camps—and that voters who are ostensibly for Fenty may not be as staunch in their support as one might think.

“There are many in the Fenty camp who are truly supporters, but a greater majority simply seem to be comfortable with ‘the devil they know’ mentality,” he wrote in an email, “even if [they] openly acknowledge that Fenty’s promises to serve in the best interests of the Georgetown community haven’t done anything substantial for them.” Read More.

Mayor Fenty Put on Notice by GBA

(Georgetown Week – Dave Roffman )

“The GBA has not yet taken a position on who to support in the Democratic primary for Mayor. We recently cosponsored with the Citizens Association of Georgetown a successful forum for the candidates for Council Chair during which issues of concern to the businesses and residents in Georgetown were very usefully explored. The Mayor’s campaign initially agreed to a similar forum, but it has become uncertain that he will participate. If he doesn’t, it will be more difficult for the businesses and residents of Georgetown to make informed decisions in this very important election.”  Rokas Beresniovas, Vice President – Georgetown Business Association.

Lyderiai padės Lietuvai atsitiesti

(Alfa – Rugilė Gaidukaitė)

Idėja kurti tarptautinį forumą kilo pernai vasarą Pasaulio lietuvių ekonomikos forume susitikusiems JAV „Eagle“ banko viceprezidentui Rokui Beresniovui ir organizacijos direktoriui Mykolui Lepeškai. Šiemet jie jau turi ne tik aiškią viziją, kaip sujungti geografiškai išsibarsčiusius lietuvius bendram tikslui, bet ir nemažai įtakingų pasekėjų.

„Norime sujungti savo srities lyderius, kurie yra lietuviai, po viena vėliava. Kai sakau „lietuviai“, turiu omenyje platesnę lietuvio sąvoką, susijusią ne tik su etnine kilme, bet ir su prisirišimu prie Lietuvos ir gero linkėjimu jai. Read More.

“Global Lithuanian Leaders” telks pasaulio lietuvius lyderius

(Veidas – Aura Leka)
Daugėja pasaulio lietuvius telkiančių organizacijų. “Neseniai įsteigta viešoji įstaiga į pasaulio lietuvių profesionalų tinklą “Global Lithuanian Leaders” (GLL) sieks sutelkti tautiečius savo srities lyderius, kad jie savo idėjomis ir darbais galėtų prisidėti prie Lietuvos plėtros”, – aiškina vienas projekto iniciatorių Mykolas Lepeška.

GLL žada bendradarbiauti ir su kitomis pasaulio lietuvių iniciatyvas telkiančiomis organizacijomis – Lietuvos verslo konfederacijos “ICC Lietuva” organizuojamu Pasaulio lietuvių ekonomikos forumu, pilietiniu judėjimu “Aš Lietuvai”, Žinių ekonomikos forumu. Pasak M.Lepeškos, naujoji organizacija nuo šių skirsis tuo, kad bus ne tik ekonominės pakraipos, bet ir skirs daug dėmesio mokslui, kultūrai, menui, aplinkosaugai, skatins verslo bendradarbiavimą su mokslu ir menu.

JAV banko viceprezidentas: esu lietuvis ne tik todėl, kad turiu pasą

(Alfa – Rugilė Gaidukaitė)

Mačiau labai daug pozityvių pokyčių – pasikeitė Lietuvos biurokratija, mokesčių sistema – dabar verslą pradėti čia lengviau. Tiesa, Vakaruose gali įkurti savo kompaniją internetu, viską sutvarkyti per dieną – čia to dar trūksta. Pasaulio lietuvių ekonomikos forume mums kilo mintis parengti projektą, į kurį įsitrauks ir kartu dirbs lietuvių lyderiai iš viso pasaulio. „Global Lithuanian Leaders“ startuos jau netrukus.

JAV „Eagle Bank“ viceprezidentas R.Beresniovas: „Lietuvos švietimo sistema toliau gamina robotus“

(Lietuvos Rytas – Monika Bončkutė, Vladas Krivickas)

Sovietinė sistema gamino robotus ir visiškai nemokė kritinio mąstymo. Ta prarastoji sovietmečio karta ir jos vaikai vis dar dominuoja Lietuvos švietimo sistemoje ir apskritai Lietuvoje. Kritinio mąstymo matyti tik patys pradmenys“, – sako Vašingtone gyvenantis „Eagle Bank“ viceprezidentas Rokas Beresniovas. Būtent dėl atsilikusios švietimo sistemos tėvynėje esama tiek daug negatyvumo, o žodis „tolerancija“ vartojamas nesuvokiant jo prasmės, įsitikinęs JAV lietuvis. Read More
