One idea: save your styling (preferably rule based) as sld files with
your data. For what I know ArcGis is also able to load sld files (it
should as it is a OGC standard...).
Better to convince your collegue to install QGIS besides his ArcGIS :-)
And even more idealistic: exchange your data in a newer standard format
like GeoPackage, which (in case of QGIS) is able to hold both data +
So IF somebody from the ArcGIS-'community' steps up and maybe make this
work cross applications. Would be cool isn't it if both ArcGIS and QGIS
could exchange data + styling (as sld) within GeoPackage.
Off course both sides have to invest it this, but I'm not sure if Esri
will try to be compatible....
