Meet Linda Spinks

Business Improvement Team Leader // User Group Chairperson

Home Back to previous page"; } ?>

Linda is the Triaster User Group Chairperson.

She has been a business analyst for the last thirteen years, joining the University of Cambridge in May 2004. Prior to this she worked for Sainsbury's and (through outsourcing) Accenture on a variety of projects.

She joined the University as part of the CamSIS project (Cambridge Student Information System) and has been involved within this project in system development, configuration, implementation and roll-out.

Throughout her career, the mapping of business processes has been a major part of her work. This continues to be the case with business process review now at the forefront within the University administration.

Linda has been Chairperson of the Triaster User Group since 2007.

I agreed to become chairperson of the Triaster User Group because I firmly believe in the Triaster Solution and want to play an active role in its continued development. I'm also a bit of a control freak so being Chair is the ideal position!!

The aims of the user group are: to be an independent group representing the needs of its members by establishing and recommending best practices and providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and experience. People attending find a welcoming group, where everyone's opinion is welcomed and where a real difference can be made to the direction of the Triaster Solution, both software and services.
