BLOC Podcast Episode 5: Jeremy Negrey

Verasana's Instructional Design leader Heidi Kirby has her own podcast where she's discussing trends in organizational culture, instructional design and all things learning. The Building Learning and Organizational Cultures (BLOC) Podcast publishes bi-weekly and is available for free on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Stitcher.


In this episode, we talk to Jeremy Negrey about finding potential in candidates outside of traditional learning and development roles. He issues a challenge to L&D hiring managers to think outside the box when looking for qualified candidates.

Jeremy Negrey has spent nearly his entire career in customer education. He’s run the gamut from technical writer to instructional designer and has created and delivered both instructor-led and eLearning content. He’s currently the owner and lead learning consultant for Crooked River Learning and the Director of Customer Education for PartsSource Inc., a healthcare technology management solution based just outside of Cleveland, Ohio USA where he resides with his wife, three children, and two dogs.
