Keynote speaker named for Brigid Collins' annual fundraiser

Renowned executive coach Jim Bergquist will be the keynote speaker for Brigid Collins Family Support Center’s annual Breaking the Cycle Breakfast.

The event takes place from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Bellingham Golf & Country Club. It is a free breakfast, but donations are requested.

Bergquist is known for his work with the Pike Place Fish Market, which was the focus of the popular business advice book “When Fish Fly.”

“Jim has a long history of empowering employees and businesses to increase innovation, productivity and results,” said Byron Manering, Brigid Collins’ executive director, in a press release. “The cultural transformations he is famous for are exactly what we need to create a community free of abuse.”

The annual fundraising breakfast supports the Whatcom County Children’s Advocacy Center, a community service operated by Brigid Collins that seeks a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to the investigation, prosecution and treatment of child abuse.

Reservations can be made by contacting Liz Davis, event coordinator, at or 360-734-4616, Ext. 20.
