Jean-Charles Savornin assisted us in the management of a large export project.

Jean-Charles has worked with us on change management with a high level of efficiency.
Our medium-sized company is indeed facing the challenge of a business model change: from several small-scale projects to a limited number of large turnkey projects.
Making people aware of the necessity for change has been successfully achieved in a short period of time. This has been a real milestone to implement simple tools and quick wins to drive the change.

Jean-Charles supported ENTECH Smart Energy in its evolution as a French leading company of the energy transition.
He first advised us on the structuration of the organization according to the different businesses addressed (energy storage, energy conversion, energy production).
Then, Jean-Charles worked with the whole team to clarify and detail the newly defined project management process.
Finally, through trainings on management and project tools, he helped create a common and transverse understanding of the project manager role.
Thanks to Jean-Charles’s deep knowledge in project management and his ability to deal at all layers of the organization, being able to address and embark both directors and employees.
The success of these missions has been instrumental in supporting our extremely fast-growing company which has multiplied by 4 folds its revenues in three years’ time and entered the Euronext Growth stock exchange in 2021.
I strongly recommend Jean-Charles as an advisor for industrial companies, especially in the energy market.
Patrick Capuano, Sales & Operations Director, Entech Smart Energies
I have had the pleasure to manage Jean-Charles when he was part of my international development team at Solairedirect.
This was a time when nothing was carved in stone and everything had to be created, adapted, implemented to build the business including the engineering and project management.
Jean-Charles took a leading role as head project manager supporting the local teams in the USA, South Africa, India, Chile, Morocco and Thailand, setting project standards and project implementation schemes to ensure best practices from development to operations of our assets.
Jean-Charles is hands-on and whenever needed he was supporting the local teams directly in the field showing his capabilities to adapt to different countries and business cultures.
I particular appreciated Jean-Charles energy, positive attitude and the fact he is never given up and trying to find alternatives whenever so required.
Jean-Charles is a Project Manager one can count on and I can highly recommend him to lead a Project Management team in France as well as Globally.
Frederik Nilsson, Business Development Director
For the restructuring of a project-oriented company, as the new President, I had to face several issues, including:
– securing the short-term cash, sales and margins of the on-going projects.
– paving the way for the future by consolidating the teams, the processes and the tools to improve contract signature and project delivery.
Thanks to his broad and deep knowledge in project management, both theoretical and operational, Jean-Charles Savornin helped us reach our goals.
His ability to work at all levels of the company made him a real asset in the restructuring of the company, putting in place processes and developing a project-oriented and contract-oriented mindset, both in the short-term and in the long-term.
The relationship he developed with the teams was a real help to get feedback from the field and develop the proper communication to shift the mindset of the company towards one of success and professionalism and improve the global level of our projects.
I am glad I met with Jean-Charles to work on this case with me and the whole team.
Jean-François Pansard, CEO, Boët StopSon
Jean-Charles Savornin supported us during the transformation of the company from a silo organization to a project organization.
He advised us on the organization to set up, and helped anticipate the difficulties.
He has also been actively involved in setting up reporting and management tools.

I recommend Jean-Charles’ pragmatic and on-the-field approach of project management, putting people in the center.
Yann Jaubert, President, ALFI Technologies
With Jean-Charles we worked on improving project management within the Gonzales Group.
Our group being composed of seven operational entities worldwide, we needed to standardize the missions of our project managers and provide cross-functional action between teams around our processes.
Jean-Charles, beyond being an expert in the field of project management, was able to listen to our teams and brought a lot of methodology to our actions.
Diagnostics, analyses, training, have been the key points in the improvement of our project management. The teams were thus able to ask themselves the right questions and move forward in the development of their profession at the service of our customers and our entities.
We were very satisfied to work with Jean-Charles in this way and I particularly recommend his support.
Jean-Marc Ancelle, Managing Director, Gonzales Group
Lumibird is an international group built from the merger of multiple small companies.
Jean Charles’ assignment was to help us build a common culture for R&D management.
His seasoned expertise in project management and matrix organization was decisive for implementing this new culture.
His great listening and practical approach helped us put together new collaborative processes.
Philippe Metivier, R&D Vice-President, Lumibird
Jean-Charles Savornin provided training on project management in July 2019 for the members of the group’s expanded EXCOM. This training was combined with a follow-up on a number of projects conducted in 2019 and 2020.
Each project manager involved testified to the practical assistance and virtuous help provided by Jean-Charles, both in learning (and then in applying the methodology) and in the use and relevance of the tools provided.
Jean-Charles was able to adapt himself perfectly to every person in order to help the different projects and the people in charge progress.
Jean-Charles set-up meetings according to the capacity and the needs of everyone. Jean-Charles thus provided the serenity and rhythm essential to the landing of the projects (for those who landed during his support). This training and its follow-up gave us a method and tolls to improve.
It’s up to us now to optimize this training, to turn this support into a real « ratchet effect » that allows us to take a step forward in our individual and collective ability to carry out the company’s project.
Gérard Bourgès, HR Director, LimGROUP
Jean-Charles is one of the most amazing teachers you will get in your life : he is both driven by pragamatism and vision and he will communicate both to you.
He is the mentor you will need to succeed in your studies and career, and more than once he will help you see things in a different way that will guarantee the success of your projects.
In addition, you’ll often find that his passion for what he teaches is contagious.
