Inside Insync – Chris Dowling

Today we meet:

Chris Dowling – Principal Consultant

Time with Insync: August 2015

Previous notable time in IT industry/customer/vendor: Best part of 10 years working within Local Government IT sector. Ranging from roles within the helpdesk and infrastructure teams with specific specialisation in networking and communications technologies.


What are your best skills for your role?

Maintaining a calm presence and considered approach to all challenges.


What do you like about your role?

Being a part of and witness to customers and colleagues excelling.


What trends are you seeing with customers?

An amazing take up and adoption of Microsoft Teams. While I am primarily focussed on all things Teams Voice, I am constantly impressed by the services, integrations and automation surfacing in and around the Microsoft Teams landscape.


What do you think about the opportunity for Teams for customers?

Microsoft Teams provides a secure, reliable, and widely accessible platform providing contextual based communication and collaboration across many of the Microsoft 365 services. Teams looks and feels purposely built to support the dynamically changing world we find ourselves in.


Where have you used Insync core values in Insync everyday work life:

Admire your work; it is a great way to setup your working day and a fantastic way to reflect on the day. Every day there is something to learn and/or grow from and taking a moment to reflect and acknowledge that I find to be a fulfilling way to finish up the working week.




What do you like to do in your downtime?

I grew up playing and loving tennis. Getting out on court and having a good hit up remains to be a great way for me unwind and take focus away from everything else in life to solely and purely striking a little tennis ball. I have since also taken up and enjoy a good social (but competitive) game of beach volleyball and invested in the world of Harley Davidson.
