Separated at birth

Betty Boop first came to fame in the 1930s as a cartoon star famous for her ‘Boop-oop-a-doop’ catchphrase and squeaky voice. So imagine the delight of Tulkinghorn when he discovered that some 70 years later Betty is still as busy as ever and is using her linguistic skills to help others be more successful.

As The Lawyer reported (20 August), Betty (now known as – deep breath – neuro-linguistic programming practitioner Rachel Taylor) says a person’s voice “can define and influence how you come across to others”. Well, it worked for Betty, it could work for you.
