"Vodafone Business's analyst event showcased a number of interesting discrete initiatives, but not an overarching plan for long-term revenue growth."

Vodafone's enterprise division, Vodafone Business, held its latest analyst event in February 2020. The event was the first for Vodafone Business's CEO, Vinod Kumar, who has been in post since September 2019. It is too soon for Kumar to have made major changes, but he will be looking to revive the division, which has reported flat revenue for at least 2 years. The session revealed several interesting discrete initiatives, but lacked an overarching plan for long-term revenue growth.

This article assesses the messages from this event.
