As part of UKISUG, Emma is co-chair of our S/4HANA Special Interest Group and helped set up and lead our Women in SAP initiative.

Emma comments: “I am a keen advocate of the User Group; I believe it is one of the most valuable resources we have to support the SAP user community.It is a well-run and an incredibly dynamic group that I really enjoy being a part of. I believe that as a substantial user group we have a significant opportunity to improve diversity and inclusion in the user community, and to do more to increase sustainability of our activities.”

Ian Mallinson is currently IT Director at Warburtons, where he leads the company’s IT team with full responsibility for all information systems implementation and ongoing technology and business process support.

It’s a force for good in the IT world and that is the type of organisation that I want to be part of. I believe passionately in knowledge sharing and that sharing with others is a win-win situation. The User Group already has a great reputation and I think there are many further opportunities to connect users to generate business value.”
