The other Singaporean “Game Changer” personalities are professional footballer Christopher James van Huizen, fashion creative Valerie Wang and artist Jahan Loh.
Christopher James van Huizen is a midfielder playing for Geylang International FC and he was a team member of the 2015 Malaysia Super League season.
Valerie Wang is a fashion creative as well as a lifestyle and travel blogger. Jahan Loh is a contemporary artist.
How does this “Game Changer” link back to Casio G-Shock? Well, the Casio G-Shocks of 1983 was a game changer in its own right to become the world’s toughest and most extreme watch.
“Personally this campaign is very close to my heart. I was galvanised into a movement when Kikuo Ibe who is fondly known as the father of G-Shock shared his personal adage of never giving up when I first joined the brand.
“His maxim speaks right to my heart where I know many of us are struggling and fighting our own battles to create the toughest watch in the world. That was a major feat in those days and the main thing here is: he believed in himself…. We are all game changers, no matter how big or small our achievements are,” says Yvonne Perpetua Ng, senior regional marketing manger, Casio Singapore.
The Casio G-Shock “Game Changer” campaign is therefore the brand’s way of celebrating your very own game changing moments.
