What can we learn about public speaking from Barbara Walters?

A nod to the “queen of talk” herself, Babs always comes across as well prepared but still conversational. Trust me – she is very well researched, memorized, and well prepared – but she does not stick to a memorized script. Instead, she has a conversation with her guest and the audience.

She is serious, yet conversational, intelligent, and yet not opposed to any topic.

Her voice is unusual and accented – but her accent does not create a communication barrier – and she captures the attention of so many!
