Podcast Author Interview with Melissa DeLay

March 19 @ 7:00 am - 7:30 am CDT


Join host, Regina Barr, and author, Melissa DeLay, for a 30 minute informational interview as they discuss the book, The Truth About Scandal: The Everyday Guide to Navigating Business Crises, on Tuesday, March 19 at 12 noon CST.  


It’s more important than ever to have sharp business communication skills. In today’s workplace, where bad behavior and even worse communication ethics run rampant, you need conversational secret weapons to help you get ahead, strengthen your reputation, and manage any crisis thrown your way.


The Truth About Scandal uses real-life stories, exact scripts, and highly successful power phrases to guide any professional—from the C-Suite to entry-level—through tense work conversations with employees, awkward moments with colleagues, office scandals that could threaten your entire career, and much more.

Written by award-winning communications strategist Melissa DeLay (The Real Power 50, Minnesota Business Magazine 2017; Communicator of the Year 2007, Carlson) Melissa shares her strategies for communication success based on two decades of reputation and crisis management. From advising CEOs through mass layoffs to navigating harassment at work, you’ll learn what to do and say to stay on top and manage any crisis—the right way.

Melissa DeLay is the award-winning founder and principal owner of TruPerception. With nearly two decades of strategic and corporate communication experience—including consulting for companies such as Ameriprise Financial and the State of Minnesota, as well as senior positions with 3M, Carlson Companies, Maytag and AmeriPride—Melissa knows how to deliver the right words in the right way to drive change, manage crises, boost engagement and build a stronger brand.
