The Community Monthly Newsletter, Dec. ’15
Happy Holidays from The SearchLite to you and your loved ones! This season is a time full of merriment, good food, better company, and warm carols. But, did you know that the famous “Jingle Bells” was composed in 1857 as a song for Thanksgiving and not for Christmas. Who knew?! Beyond this fun fact we have exciting news to share with you for the month of December.
*Feel free to forward this newsletter to anyone that might be interested! We would also encourage you to share our monthly newsletters on your social media platforms so others may become aware of the IIR Community,*
As always, please feel free to come to me with any questions or concerns you may have (firstname.lastname@example.org).

As all of you know, the Learning Management System is a crucial part of the IIR experience and we strongly encourage our innovators to participate. It is an easy and fast way to become aware of what exactly The SearchLite does and what terminology we are using and why. Several IIRS have shown outstanding performance and have completed all of the courses to date on our new Learning Management System. We applaud you for your achievements!
An IIR that has gone above and beyond…
“Coming from an academic research background, my experience with The SearchLite exposed me to multiple facets of market discovery challenges, and helped broaden my knowledge of current industry trends with respect to the internet of things. I enjoy TSL’s positive nurturing environment which allows me to learn and grow in my career.”
