Who are you? Daniel Peart
What do you do? IT Business Partner
What does that mean? I manage the relationship between Microminder and our corporate clients, this is achieved by providing project management, consultancy, providing strategic solutions and regular review meetings.
Where do you live? Cardiff, Wales.
How long have you worked for Microminder? I joined Microminder in July 2019
What’s it been like so far? I haven’t been with Microminder that long, and the IT Business Partner role is a new one to the company. So it’s been really fun developing and shaping that from the beginning.
What did you do before? I have just over 10 years’ experience within the Dental IT industry. I started off my career in 2009 at James Hull Dental Care as an IT technician where I provided IT Support to 70+ dental practices across the UK, I quickly moved on to project manage the roll out of a cutting edge IT infrastructure to the group before becoming IT Manager.
After this I worked for several other dental corporates such as Smiles Dental UK & Ireland, Smile Dental Care along with some of the UKs leading independent practices. More recently I worked with a multi service provider igloo Healthcare. I worked at igloo as an IT Business Partner and my clients included Portman Healthcare and Bupa Dental, I was then promoted to IT Manager where I took responsibility of the day to day management of the IT department.
What’s your favourite part of the job? I love making things happen. Planning projects can be complicated and stressful so planning down to the very last detail is imperative. Knowing everyone involved in the planning stages worked their best and delivered a great project is always satisfying.
I’m also all about taking a proactive approach to my work because, who likes working in a reactive environment!?
Tell us what excites you most about the future? I’m most excited about branching out of the dental sector into other sectors of healthcare such as Optical, GPs and Veterinary practices.
Where can we find you when you’re not working? So life outside of Microminder usually involves keeping busy with the family, my wife and I have two children aged 7 and 2 (going on 22). We love the outdoors and often spend our time walking and exploring new places. During ‘my time’ I enjoy anything adrenaline fuelled. My main hobby is mountain biking, which usually involves riding steep descents, rocks, roots, jumps and drops at speed, it is fun. Honestly.
