Testimonials for Daryl Elliott Green

“Our leadership team’s workshop with Daryl was very powerful and delivered a number of key messages that have truly resonated with all that were there. Daryl’s personal insights into what has been an incredibly challenging period of his life has opened up a range of conversations and created an opportunity for people to reflect on the importance of people and teams.”... “I recommend Daryl’s workshop unreservedly – a true investment of time which exceeded my expectations.”

RICHARD HANCY Regional Manager New Zealand, Sinclair Knight Merz


“I had the pleasure of witnessing Daryl’s presentation in 2015. It was easily one of the best I’ve seen – moving, informative and very entertaining. The first thing that struck me was the courage required to re-live that horrific event in order to try and help others who had suffered similarly. Then there was the mental strength needed to go from a depressed state to standing up in front of an audience and not only telling a demanding story, but doing it in such an entertaining and informative way. Daryl deserves our thanks and our congratulations on what he’s doing for the community.

If you have an opportunity to see his presentation live don’t miss it.”

IAN CHAPPELL  Australian Cricket Captain

 “The response to your resilience presentation has been overwhelming, so much so we have had you return three times over the past nine months. Feedback from each of the sessions has been exceptional, including: ‘I felt humbled and privileged to have had the opportunity to hear Daryl speak. It was a powerful and moving three hour presentation from a truly courageous and resilient man, interspersed with good humour and audience interaction. I hope Daryl never tires of imparting his experiences and learnings. I came away with a great perspective on how sweating the small stuff is truly such a waste of time.’.”

Daryl Elliott Green's Biography

Daryl Elliott Green’s life was shattered in 2000 when he was TWICE SHOT in the face and shoulder while on a routine callout to a neighbourhood dispute. Despite critical injuries, he drew his firearm and began searching for the gunman. A year later, for his actions that night, he was awarded for his bravery, but Daryl was only just embarking on his harrowing road to recovery.


What followed was a decade of dark times. It’s only through sheer grit and determination, and the support of those around him, that Daryl made his way back from the depths of despair.


Over ten years, while suffering depression and PTSD, Daryl underwent over a dozen surgical procedures to reconstruct his shattered mouth, successfully waged a 10 year battle for criminal compensation, overcame one of his greatest fears and became a firearms instructor, earned a masters in finance and achieved three further promotions within the Queensland Police Service.


Today, Daryl shares his powerful life lessons through his TWICE SHOT talks, workshops and programs. With a natural gift for public speaking, he captivates and inspires his audience, bringing people from tears to laughter, providing them with a truly transformative experience.


TWICE SHOT talks can be customised to ANY audience and incorporate multimedia, including actual audio of the shooting, 3D computer modelling, 2D schematics, and CSI style analysis

to create a truly immersive experience.
