Chris Dowling, Uckfield Business Award finalist

Chris Dowling, Business MentorMy background

Hello, I’m Chris Dowling.

I started a family business in 1977 in the print industry. Over the years, the business grew and developed significantly, moving and adapting to the changing print market and technology. As a business owner, I have been involved with all aspects of management, including financial planning, development, strategy, sales, marketing and customer services.


My business is based in Uckfield, East Sussex, where I have lived for many years. I am very active in the local business community, with my own businesses Dowling Creative and Dowling Consultants. I am also a committee member of the Uckfield Chamber of Commerce and a regular visitor to business networking events in my local area.

I have owned and run a family business/SME for the whole of my working life. I have over 35 years of day-to-day business experience – “I have been there and done it”. I understand the challenges, opportunities and successes of running your own business.
