Expert of the Week: Frédéric Pavesi – “We can be stronger by cooperating than by competing”

Solved’s Expert of the Week Frédéric Pavesi wants to help and support projects having a sustainable aim.

Frédéric promotes solutions in relation with the blue economy and the circular economy, which are related to water and more specifically to the following topics: a) reducing water consumption, b) improving water quality, c) increasing access to drinking water.

Frédéric says that he wants to solve challenges to improve our quality of life and make our world better for us and the future generations.

“What motivates me is the idea that we all can influence things, that changes are opportunities more than threats, and that we can really be much stronger by cooperating than by competing.”

Frédéric has a mechanical engineering background. He has always looked through his various professional experiences to acquire new skills based on a practical rather than theoretical approach. As a consequence, in addition to his engineering background, he has strong sales skills, and an understanding of different cultures and mentalities.

He says that to be a great problem solver you have to get out of your comfort zone.

“By cooperating, by challenging your ideas and concepts with the ones of other people involved. And most importantly: by changing the rules!”
