Babushka’s Words of Wisdom

While enjoying some downtime after what was a pretty exhausting few days at Forum One and World Lithuanian Economic Forum, Today Translations CEO Jurga Zilinskiene met a fascinating Russian lady in downtown Vilnius. We call her ‘Babushka’.

Interpreting is never easy, especially in one’s third language, but Jurga managed to take in some words of wisdom from the 85-year-old great-grandmother on how to live a full and happy life.

Having spent the last few days with a number inspiring speakers and business leaders, including Sir Richard Branson and Francisco Ricardo Blagevitch, Jurga said her experiences meeting “Babushka” was the most touching, telling us, “I think she could take centre stage at Forum One next year.”
