Polly has over 15 years of experience dedicated to various aspects of customer programs and event management. Her experience covers the management of corporate events—internal and external, customer user events, executive briefing centers, customer councils, customer advisory boards, and customer communications. She has spent time working for organizations based in India, Japan, Australia and managing global teams in those regions and Europe. Polly recently started a role at Citrix as VP of Executive Programs where her team is responsible for all C-Level events and experiences as well as the Global Briefing Centers and Global Reference Program. Polly first joined CEMA back in 2004 and credits a lot of the success she has had in her events to the partnerships she has formed from being a CEMA member.
Polly holds a B.S.B.A in International Business and a MS degree in Communication both from the University of Denver. Polly resides in Denver and is also on the Board for a Denver-based Labrador Retriever rescue where she adopted her black Lab, Osborne, from seven years ago. In her spare time, she is often volunteering for the Lab rescue, traveling, spending time with Osborne, or cheering on Nebraska football.
