HCS (Havas Conseil en Stratégie) has been founded in 2011. The company is in priority devoted to
backing managerial staff in both private and public organizations, which need an eclectic, wide-
ranging approach to solve system level problems. HCS is capable of better guidance of the company
strategy in case public policies interfere in the business process. HCS tailors its interventions taking
into account the customers and partners business culture. The company’s ambition is also to become
a business catalyst acting via a cluster of complementary and trusted partners. HCS’s endeavor is to
get as close as possible to its customers and partners, but is convinced that its best contribution is
also to deliver its own, sometimes challenging, assessment of any shared issue. When asked for,
HCS can also participate to the company’s change management process.
HCS assets are based on the long track record Robert Havas, the founder, capitalized all along his
career in high tech industries and government functions.
Robert Havas has been the chairman of EOS( European Organisation for Security) between 2008 and
HCS offers support to large companies and administrations, mainly in Europe. Activities are focalized
in Paris and Brussels, with possible extension to Spain, Germany and Italy.
Privileged intervention areas are:
• Support to high level bodies and organisations for implementing challenging strategy objectives,
including processes such as roadmapping, partners acquisition and management and lobbying.
• Audit of (and support to) large companies R/D strategy and execution, on analysis of the
business plan and cases, benchmarking wrt to competitors, technology partnership, innovation
assessment, and, where appropriate, conduct the change management.
• Construction of (and support to) large international R/D projects in a EU environment, implying
partners and the public authorities relationship management.
• Networking and establishment of business and technical links with key stakeholders at national
and European level
Intervention domains are multifold, but target in priority business areas where the public/private
interaction is crucially important and where the private sector needs to share targets and align
agendas with public policies.
