“Jonathan and the IFMA Team (Rae & Jackie) implemented IFMA Soft Skills cohort for both our C&W and Google teams which were very engaging and adaptable for the end users. They definitely brought their knowledge and expertise to the table when coaching the teams through their different types of topics & exercises they have planned. The team appreciated the flexibility when it came to soft skills exercises and open forum discussions. Both teams felt that they were able to bring their challenges to the table and leave with working solutions on how to overcome our evolving industry! Thank you Jonathan & team for everything you do!”

"When COVID-19 led to a move from in-person teaching and learning to distance learning in March 2020, the San Mateo County Office of Education wanted to respond with timely staff development for the teachers in our 23 member districts. However, we knew we would need to partner for training at that scale. Jonathan Bissell, Executive Director of CCCE at San Mateo Community College District, proved to be a collaborative and agile partner. Jonathan teamed with our staff to create a comprehensive Distance Learning series delivered to 3 cohorts of San Mateo County district staff over 6 weeks. He worked with us to recruit trainers, hired instructional designers to inform course design, and served as a thought-partner every step of the way. We trained over 350 teachers in this summer series, and continue to offer the courses garnering high satisfaction ratings from teachers in virtual classrooms daily with students."

"Working closely with SMCCCD’s Community, Continuing and Corporate Education (CCCE) team, we developed a custom class designed to improve my management team’s professional communication skills. Together with the CCCE team, led by Executive Director Jonathan Bissell and Professional Trainer Rae Ann Ianniello, we created and delivered a full-day Effective Communications workshop. The workshop drove home key concepts, provided active coaching, and leveraged creative reinforcement techniques that helped my staff internalize what they’ve learned. Exercises were built off real-life experiences that my team could easily relate-to. They were able to apply what they have learned immediately in their day to day interactions upon completion of the workshop. It’s rare to see such improvements so quickly. Kudo’s to the CCCE team!"
Frederick Siy, Managing Director – Application Development and Support
“My team found the High-Impact Leadership Training comprehensive, thought-provoking, fun, and effective - and the trainers were excellent! Most importantly, the content was highly relevant to Snowflake and demonstrated Jonathan and his team’s ability to listen to our needs and design a customized framework of easy-to-apply skills and strategies to grow our leaders, managers, and team members. I highly recommend CCCE Corporate Training Solutions to any fast-scaling company seeking to upskill their leaders and teams.”
Walter Aldana, Vice President of Global Alliances, Snowflake
“Our team decided to invest time in our Organizational Development and Health a year prior to working with SMCCCD’s CCCE Corporate Training Solutions team. We had engaged in a series of workshops with consultants to help us identify gaps and opportunities for growth. After successfully identifying our needs, we were seeking a team that could help deliver the trainings and tools we needed in order to start cultivating our healthy behaviors. For me as the HRBP, it was really important that we had instructors that would really take the time to understand our team and tailor trainings to our organizational wants. Rae and Jonathan took the time to dive into our findings and fully comprehend what we were trying to achieve and our team dynamics. They were able to develop a curriculum personalized to all our needs in a short amount of time. Our training topics were Giving and Receiving Feedback, Communication Skills, Conflict Resolution, and Emotional Intelligence. Most importantly, Rae was able to gain the trust and buy-in needed to be successful on the first training we held, which really carried over into the series of trainings we engaged in. Thank you for all of your help and we hope to continue to develop our relationship!”
Mayra Aguilar, HR Business Partner, Main Street Launch

"Our firm is extremely pleased to have connected with CCCE Corporate Training Solutions. When we contacted Jonathan Bissell about creating a custom technical program we discovered there was a wealth of basic business skills and leadership course options offered through CCCE. In particular, we’ve found the Public Speaking & Presentation Skills workshop with Jackie Welsh to be very impactful. That workshop has now become part of our core leadership development program. The dedication that Jonathan and his team displayed toward meeting our organization’s high expectations has been impressive. They have earned our trust and given us confidence that our training investment will be a positive one. We looking forward to building on this relationship in the future."

"Our educational trust fund was looking for a program to help prepare Surgical Technologists at hospitals in the area to pass their national certification exam and Skyline College had just what we needed. Working through Community, Continuing and Corporate Education we were able to have the program delivered on-site at a nearby hospital, and on a schedule that allowed working Surgical Techs to attend. [They] made it easy for us to work with them and the feedback from the participants was excellent. We are very happy with the whole experience."
Michael Kushner, Director of Regional Programs
"Our team at Global Corporate College worked with SMCCCD’s Community, Continuing and Corporate Education (CCCE) team to deliver a technical training program for government clients from China. Feedback from the delegation was outstanding. The CCCE team, led by Executive Director Jonathan Bissell, was professional, communicative and well prepared. They listened to client needs and delivered exactly what they wanted. I could not have asked for a better partner."
Ryan Ouellette, Asia Pacific Project Manager (former), Global Corporate College
“As senior leaders of UNIMINUTO, the largest non-profit university in Colombia with over 120,000 students (low income) and 59 campuses, we take our mission to provide affordable, high-quality technical and university education very seriously and are always seeking to acquire innovative and creative methodologies to solve new challenges and take advantage of opportunities in a faster way to respond to current trends and opportunities. The Silicon Valley Innovation Training Program fit perfectly within our governing body’s development strategy and informed both our way of thinking and our way of working – empowering us to tackle a vast array of complex challenges and deliver real value to all our stakeholders. More specifically, this one-week intensive program afforded our leadership team a business experience through visits to various companies and start-ups as well as universities in Silicon Valley, giving us new perspectives and inspiration regarding entrepreneurship and culture, as well as the new ways and technologies being used to address current challenges in the world. We also learned about business models and all the leadership skills necessary for ventures and their growth, all of which are vital to be successful and sustainable. Through this experience, each member of our leadership team has been equipped to apply what they learned in each campus of UNIMINUTO. Thanks to Jonathan Bissell and Laura Brugioni for a great experience.”
Mauricio Izquierdo - Director of International Projects
"The conflict resolution training was well worth the cost and our time. The Department of Public Safety has the potential of dealing with conflict nearly every day. It is important to learn and possess the tools needed to defuse and de-escalate situations not only in our professional lives, but in our personal lives as well. This class provided many of these tools. Our staff attending the course gave it high marks."
Bill Woods, Director of Public Safety
"The Office of Human Resources collaborated with CCCE to design professional training programs for employees of the San Mateo County Community College District. Executive Director Jonathan Bissell has done a phenomenal job in executing our desires to develop a program that meets our needs, resulting in a Professional Development Academy that provides in-depth practical leadership development for our managers and employees and consists of a robust menu of courses taught by professional trainers from CCCE, who are very knowledgeable in their content area and have a warm and engaging approach that is interactive and facilitates participatory engagement. We were so pleased with Jonathan’s service that we requested his assistance to help write a State grant to expand our leadership training - which we won and have been using to develop and facilitate leadership development programs for executive and senior leadership at our three campuses."
Cassandra C. Jackson, MA, Human Resources Manager, San Mateo County Community College District
“Our newly formed Arts Advisory Work Group needed to hit the ground running and learn to work together productively. Master Facilitators Holly Allen and Jonathan Bissell worked with us to understand our desired outcomes and led our team through a creative, practical, and productive session built around The 6 Types of Working Genius. This was a great way to set the tone and launch the group – motivating and helping everyone to understand how to make their best contribution. I highly recommend working with Holly and Jonathan!”
