November 23rd Speakers: Judith Kenney, Judith P. Kenney & Associates and Robin Moss, ribit
Judith Kenney, established Judith P. Kenney & Associates in 1995. The company, which she runs with her brother Nat, handles all areas of estate planning, wills, probate, guardianship, probate and fiduciary litigation. She provides her clients the highest level of personal service and she and her brother work on each and every case personally, to assure that their clients receive the quality and professionalism they deserve. Judith has been practicing since 1983, starting in Houston, before moving to the metroplex.
Once of the things Judith spoke to us about was working as a guardian ad litem, as well as being appointed by the court. She spoke about how important it was to have a will, or the state will determine who will get your belongings (and it might not be who you want!). Also she spoke about how the state determines who is your realtive, which is a very long drawn out process.
Judith enjoys speaking and has taught a substantial number of seminars through the years.
Robin Moss, started ribit - a digital marketing agency, in March of 1994. ribit provides a complete digital marketing offering including graphic design, branding, marketing, web sites, e-mail campaigns, mobile media and social media.
Robin gave a brief background of how she started her company because her former boss wanted an interactive multimedia kiosk and she could not find a company that could do it at an economical price, so she signed up her boss as her first client and opened her doors with four employees and the rest was history!
Today, Robin is a big proponent of using all the existing media. So many people are just focused on social media that they forget that things like direct mail can still have an impact. Then there are people who think all social media are a fad. In 1994 Robin was busy trying to convince people that the internet was not a fad...

Hollway comes from along line of football coaches in his family. His great grandfather, Lou Hollway became Ann Arbor, Michigan's first athletic director in 1922. His grandfather Bob Hollway coached at the collegiate and professional levels, including serving as the NFL's St. Louis Cardinals head coach from 1971 to 1972. Bob Hollway also played three season at Michigan and the high school football field in Ann Arbor is named after his grandfather.
His father, Mike Hollway, has been the football head coach at Ohio Wesleyan for the last 23 years and holds the record for the most wins in school history. Hollway perceives his role as coach as a dual one. "As a coach, my first objective is to win: guide the team and give the player the opportunity to be successful. But we also have a responsibility to each individual that goes beyond the football field," says Hollway. "Our greatest measure of success is the outcome and the quality of life - both personal and professional - our players enjoy after they leave us."
