Polly Kruse

VP of Executive Programs, Citrix

As the Sr. Manager, Marketing Events at Symantec, Billi Little drives the strategy and management of the global event program.  She is lucky to manage a great team of event professionals that help create the largest event experiences for Symantec.  Billi is an almost a 26 year veteran in the event world (July 1993 is when she received her first event position) and is still loving the chaos of the event industry.  She has spent most of her career working in the software industry and she enjoys the challenge of trying to incorporate give back opportunities at the event she manages.

Billi has a couple of great passions in life and they include traveling, hanging out with friends and drinking beer.  She manages to connect those three passions many times in the event career path.  She was raised in a small town in Montana and has now lived in Denver, Colorado for 26 years.  She loves the outdoor life that living in Denver offers and you can find her playing volleyball, watching sporting events or attending concerts in her down time. She is a life-long Broncos fan and still believes in the team, despite their poor performance the last couple of years!

Billi has been an active member of CEMA for about 15 years and is a former CEMA board member.  She truly believes the you can improve your event programs by working with and learning from the outstanding professionals that are part of the CEMA community.   Symantec was a proud to sponsor a CEMA pop-up at RSA this year and Billi hopes they can do that again in the future.  She loves meeting and sharing ideas with other CEMA members so she looks forward to meeting you at the next CEMA event.
