CEO of Mitch Thrower Knocks It Out Of The Park in Peers Network's First Speaker Series of 2024!

Last Friday, Peers Network proudly hosted our inaugural Speakers Series Event in the heart of San Diego, bringing together alumni members, new members, and curious guests eager to learn more about our organization. The evening was a resounding success, filled with insightful discussions, valuable networking opportunities, and a vibrant community spirit that truly embodies what Peers Network stands for.

The event kicked off with an hour of networking, where attendees had the chance to connect, share experiences, and build relationships. This initial session set the stage for a night of engaging conversations and meaningful connections, as old friends reunited and new bonds were formed.

Our Speakers Series officially began with an introduction from Peers Network President Justin Brennan, who set the tone for the evening with his warm and welcoming remarks. Justin then moderated a dynamic panel discussion featuring Chantal Duisters and Nastaran Parvizi, co-founders of Duisters & Parvizi, APC. Their firm, renowned for its expertise in Estate Planning, Probate, and Trust Administration, has made a significant impact by providing comprehensive and tailored legal services to their clients.

Chantal and Nastaran shared their journey of building a successful business together, highlighting the unique challenges and triumphs of working alongside a best friend. They offered candid insights into the hurdles women face in a traditionally male-dominated industry and underscored the importance of resilience and support in overcoming these challenges. One of the key takeaways from their discussion was the critical role a trust plays in protecting assets, beyond what a living will can offer, emphasizing the need for thorough and proactive estate planning.

The evening's headliner, Mitch Thrower, CEO of, captivated the audience with his inspiring keynote speech. Mitch's entrepreneurial journey, from selling glow sticks as a young boy to leading a major events management platform, was nothing short of extraordinary. He shared invaluable lessons on the mindset required for business success, the importance of setting and adapting goals, and the strategic art of leveraging trust to secure funding. His advice on the power of saying no resonated deeply, encouraging all attendees to prioritize their goals and make intentional decisions.
