I work for the University of Derby in the United Kingdom as Enterprise Systems Architect.
I have worked with PeopleSoft and then Oracle for over twenty years, with the last fourteen in Higher Education. From 2013 to 2017 I was a member of the CXA Advisory Group and have presented at EMEA and Alliance. I was also asked to present on CRM at the first Arab Alliance. In 2018 I had a change of focus onto Finance and was the UoD Project Manager for the implementation of Oracle ERP Cloud, which went live in November 2018. The ERP/HCM Cloud Advisory group is a new and growing community. The pace of change within Higher Ed and technology is rapid and continues to accelerate, offering exciting opportunities as we move forward. I believe sharing our knowledge and experience is key within our community.
I enjoy volunteering for the HEUG, it has helped me grow professionally and I have met a huge number of people who are passionate about their work, Higher Ed and our community.
