Has anyone used a voice coach for prepping for PM interviews? Was it worth it?

Following!

Not specifically a voice coach, but I currently have a career coach I am working with. Even elite professional athletes rely on coaches so I consider the coaching services as an investment in myself.

Oh that's an interesting approach. I know of people using interviewing companies, but not voice...

I guess. There are some things that could change. Never thought of a voice coach though until now.

Can you ask a friend who’s blunt with you to tell you their opinion? It’s hard to know if your speaking style is going to adversely affect interviews from written posts. My thought is it’s an unusually specific suggestion and that you might not be totally surprised to hear it. When hiring coaches of any kind, you need to have a goal in mind. What would be your goal for the coaching engagement?

I have. The feedback has been my answers and cases are solid. I have been through 2 recruiting cycles and haven't moved past the first round. Was told that I got down leveled somewhere else and hence the conversation with the interview coach as I wanted to know what I was doing wrong.
