Meet Gavin Tan – Principal Technologist at DDLS
Gavin Tan is one of DDLS’ Principal Technologists, recognised for his expertise with Microsoft as well as providing strategic and operational input with our clients, sales team, and marketing team for better outcomes.
With 14 years experience as a Technical Instructor, he joined DDLS in 2010 to resume his career and is known for his exuberant and knowledgeable delivery over a wide range of courses. This has included conducting courses on-site for clients in regional areas where no remote solutions were possible. Throughout, he develops a good rapport with his clients, both to ascertain what they want and seeking that they understand.
Gavin has had the opportunity to be a speaker at Microsoft Ignite Australia (formerly TechEd) for Exam Cram sessions and as one of their Technical Learning Guides over the years. The enthusiast within him provides the drive that keeps his skills current. He is no stranger to live-tweeting at odd hours keynotes of events from the other side of the world as they happen.
Hailing from Melbourne, he has a wide range of interests, feeling at home amongst the peaks of Mount Everest Base Camp as he is tinkering on his PC, garden or garage, currently studying the nuances of providing IT support in challenging locations such as Antarctica.
