Glenfiddich has launched the Where Next campaign to inspire others to step out of their comfort zone. The single malt scotch whisky bran hopes to encourage people to embrace challenges to create meaningful growth. This Southeast Asian campaign will hit Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
Central to the Where Next campaign are Mavericks, people who embody the changemaker spirit, everyday people who are courageous enough to challenge themselves to forge their own paths, creating change even if the odds are against them.
