Category Design: your own space in your customer's mind
You are competing in a crowded category submitting to someone else’s rules.
Category Design allows you to create a different way for your customer to see your product. Instead of being better or cheaper than X, be unique.

Karen Bhavnani, Innovation and Implementation Manager
John delivered a hands-on interactive business model workshop helping us in framing our thinking and identifying and evaluating the business potential of our new initiative.
John used varied group methods that sparked open discussion and new ways of thinking about our assumptions, the marketplace and key stakeholders. We recommend John for his expertise and his detailed approach to workshop preparation and delivery to meet outcomes.
John has become a valued marketing partner for BlueBotics. We worked with him to update our brand messaging in the Storybrand style. Instantly respected by our entire team, he both carefully guided and brought a fresh (but relevant) perspective to these brainstorms. He helped us to define, in particular, our customers’ key challenges in a way that speaks to anyone. We’ve since used John’s consultancy to stress-check our plans for our messaging rollout and I can imagine this won’t be the last time we enlist his expertise.

Starting ACTAGIS, we knew that digital channels are indispensable to business development. Standpoint has exceeded our expectations and allowed us to significantly increase sales.
It would be hard to find a better service!
Christophe Monnier, Directeur
Most consultants are good at talking, John is all about listening and delivering valuable results. Our Value proposition workshop was straight to the point and allowed the management team to agree on common goals. Later, we contacted Standpoint to help us with our website copywriting and content creation. Once again, John delivered great content in no time.
John quickly understood the needs of my company: understanding the business model, analyzing the profile and needs of customers, the quality of the message, and sensitivity to the “touch and feel” of the digital vector. Returns from customers and prospects are excellent and business is boosted.
Jovana Rotula, Marc Trillou, Founders
John is a great coach for our team. He helped us on the general strategy, digital marketing and communication areas. Always thinking outside of the box, listening carefully to our challenges and coming up with creative solutions. John is not a talker, he is a real doer.
Florian Bersier, Founder
Coaching a startup is hard! John quickly found a way to help Gmelius consolidate its market approach and processes in various fields going from marketing to human resources. He is a very smart and committed person who is always ready to lend a sympathetic ear.
I’m pleased to have worked with John Elbing at Standpoint on my storytelling and strategic positioning.
We conducted multiple sessions via video and that format worked above expectation, really powerful and efficient use of time.
John went deep into my companies situation. He clearly understands tech, product and the business challenges that a company like mine faces.
John then has a real knack for synthesising this context, applying a couple of really powerful frameworks, and has shepherded me to a place where my message is a lot clearer and customers will find it a lot easier to listen….an easy story is a better story! Thank you John, I look forward to working with you again.
John always tries to understand even the most complex projects. He identifies with the client and offers simple, pragmatic and clear advice. Sensitive and human, he offers a new perspective on the good development of the product. Thank you.
