College has a real buzz!

Two former comrades in arms met last Wednesday when former Royal Navy Commodore and current Bracknell & Wokingham College Principal/CEO, Campbell Christie CBE, hosted a visit for former Regimental Sergeant Major, John Wisener MBE.

John and Campbell served together on two previous occasions.  The first time was here in Bracknell at the old Staff College in Broad Lane which is now ‘The Parks’ housing development.  It was here that the new Joint Services Command and Staff College (JSCSC) was established.  The second time was at the JSCSC's world-class new building at Shrivenham near Swindon.

John was the College Warrant Officer, responsible for protocol and ensuring that high ranking visitors to the JSCSC got a really positive first impression.  Campbell was the Deputy Director of the JSCSC's main course - the year-long prestigious Advanced Command and Staff Course which prepares about 330 high-flying British and International officers for senior roles every year.

By the time that John finally retired from the British Army he had served as the Staff College Warrant Officer for an impressive 12 years.  So he really knows what a great college feels like!  As he was saying farewell last week, John told Campbell that he felt a real 'buzz' about Bracknell & Wokingham College – and that he believed that this will be of tremendous benefit to students.
