October News and Updates

Posted by SmartSimple Software on Nov 9, 2022 10:24:18 AM

It seems not long ago when we were all still basking in patio weather, enjoying the warmth over a few drinks. So it’s bittersweet for many of us to pull out our favorite cardigans and coziest crewnecks as colder months approach.

But as legendary Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde once lamented, “conversation about the weather is the last refuge of the unimaginative". To that, we couldn’t agree more. Thankfully, we have a lot more to talk about than the weather in this month’s newsletter.

October was noteworthy for many reasons. Earlier in the month, we hosted the SmartSimple Unite EMEA Conference, our first in-person event in nearly three years! We also recognized Cyber Security Awareness Month, a time devoted to highlighting the importance of robust cybersecurity best practices.

As we look towards a busy November, there are several conferences we’ll be attending. Read on for the latest on all of these activities!

September has the distinction of having some of the most famous and most talented people in history born in the month. They include legendary rockers like Freddie Mercury, athletes like the recently retired G.O.A.T of women’s tennis Serena Williams, and famed crime author Agatha Christie.

This group also shares a birthday that’s near and dear to our hearts… SmartSimple! 2022 is a special year for us at SmartSimple because we officially turn 20!

And while our 20th year milestone is definitely a reason for us to pause and celebrate our past, present and future, we still had a lot to keep us busy this month.

From our final preparations for the SmartSimple Unite EMEA Conference, to our attendance at the 2022 GHSA Conference, there’s plenty to cover in this month’s newsletter.

Read on for the latest updates and what we’re doing to celebrate our 20th anniversary!
