I went to Vodafone's HQ today. After travelling on two packed tube trains, two overground trains (one VERY slow one) and finally a bus, I was cursing the mobile phone operator for not setting up its global HQ in London.
When I got there I realised why they are still located in a relatively small backwater outside of London, namely Newbury: It's not so much an HQ as a small village! Caught a glimpse of Arun Sarin coming down the stairs, and deputy CEO Vittorio Colao also popped his head round the door of the meeting room I was in to give a cryptic message to Steve Pusey.
Anyway, watch out for a face to face with Steve Pusey, CTO of Vodafone Group, in March.
