A confidential space for senior stakeholders in specialized media & events globally to meet, share insights and discuss growth strategies.

About Renewd International


Renewd International has been designed to create a space for sharing and discussion - for senior executives from businesses with international operations, or those with an interest in international growth strategies.

Join us for virtual roundtables to share growth strategies, best practices, and business challenges, in a closed door environment.


  • - Renewd International virtual events will be open to all and take place 8 times in 2022, always on the 1st Wednesday of the month.
  • - These 60 minute roundtables will be hosted online and under Chatham House Rule. They will therefore not be recorded - creating a confidential space for strategic discussions and candid sharing.
  • - Each session will include 2-3 speakers discussing a specific topic or case study, plus group discussions and Q&A.


Without attributing points to specific contributors, key takeaways from the roundtables will be written up and shared with all who take part and the wider Renewd network.


The day after each virtual round-table, there will be an invite-only dinner in central London for Leaders (CEOs, MDs, Founders & Owners). Contact Helen Coetzee ( for more information.
