Challenging and creative
Innovation is about challenging existing ways of doing things, asking the difficult questions and thinking differently. It means bringing the right people together in the right place at the right time, and letting them be creative.
That’s how our Enterprise Innovation Programme works. It helps our most adventurous customers come up with ideas to change their businesses from the ground up. It has inspired new products, services, and revenue streams; innovative ways of using technology; unimagined efficiencies and transformations in productivity.Learn how to get started
Get started with an Innovation workshop
Our Innovation workshops bring the right people together so they can have brave, honest and creative conversations.
Our half-day Vodafone Innovation workshops allow your senior marketing, IT, sales, HR and strategy executives to engage with experienced Vodafone Innovation experts in a highly interactive session that’s relevant to your business, sector and objectives.
We believe it’s important to mix skills, experience and specialities to drive new thinking. To think big, defy expectations, knock-down established beliefs, and generate brilliant new ideas.
