SMW Programming Updates: Superfan, Team Canada, TikTok & More!”

This past year, the Toronto Raptors’ incredible run to their first-ever NBA championship dominated our hearts, minds, and feeds – not just in Toronto, but across the country – and even around the world. Many of us jumped on the bandwagon, but one “Superfan,” Nav Bhatia, hasn’t missed a game for the entire existence of the franchise – that’s every game for 24 years.

As all of us were gripped by Raptors fever, Superfan Nav Bhatia became a phenomenon both courtside and online, grabbing the attention of fans and brands alike, and forcing all of us as marketers to rethink what it means to be a true influencer. All of this has most recently earned him a nomination for the E! People’s Choice Award for “Most Hype Worthy Canadian of 2019.”

This November, Nav will join us onstage at CBC’s Glenn Gould Studio Theatre for a live conversation about The Power of Inclusion: from Sikh to Superfan. This is an excellent addition to our programming that will also feature conversations with Matt Tierney, Managing Editor Team Content for the Toronto Raptors (MLSE), as well as a panel of brands that worked closely with the Toronto Raptors on brand partnerships and social media campaigns, including McDonald’s Canada, Tangerine and Sunlife Financial.

Another exciting addition to our roster is Canadian Olympic Athlete – and influencer in her own right – Team Canada’s Alysha Newman.

These speakers join our quickly growing lineup of 30+ experts, influencers and brands in Social Media including:

  • Digital and media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, TikTok (Bytedance), LinkedIn, CBC Toronto, Globe & Mail, and others
