David is a great listener, and out of this he offers phenomenal insights. I’ve worked with David at various points over the past few years to get clarity on my life vision, my goals, strengths, weaknesses. He’s helped me identify and set the steps I needed to make progress. I recommend working with David to design a program for you, and to be the accountability partner you need to succeed at making positive change.
Dominic Bortolussi

Founder, TWG

After working with David for a short 3 months, everything has changed for me. My outlook on life, my business and how I lead is different as a result of the path David walked with me on. I am a much more confident leader who gets real results from her team. My goals and vision for my future are much clearer and I am walking confidently towards the life I am creating and am in control of. I wouldn’t have gotten here without him. Thank you David.

I have worked with a number of different executive coaches during my career. David is an excellent one. He does a great job of listening, guiding a conversation to help you discover things about yourself that you didn’t see, and prompting you to take action. He’s also very positive and cheerful, which means the coaching sessions don’t just help you get results, they are also fun!


Partner, Loyal VC

Can’t teach and old dog new tricks?” Not true! As an experienced entrepreneur embarking on a new venture David has used his empathetic but tough, trust building ability to create safe space for me to work with him at a deep level. I have discovered so much about me that inherently holds me back without me even knowing it. His insightful way of surfacing these mental blocks and equipping me with self management tools has helped me forge a stronger path forward by unlocking both business and emotional value. David, thanks to you I am in a fantastic place and am so happy to recommend you.

Shainoor Khoja

CEO & Founder, Thrive-Community Inc.

Within the first fifteen minutes of talking with David, he was able to provide acute insight into my own self-sabotage. After 3 months of coaching, David helped me rediscover my creativity, unleash my inner confidence, and abolish my self-doubt. The results were so life-changing, it was a easy decision to continue to work with him. David’s guidance has helped me become very aware of the powerful tools I’ve always had within myself – tools that now allow me to actively seek out new personal and professional challenges instead of being held back by self-created fear.

David is relentless in drilling down to the core limiting issues holding back your potential. I recommend working with David if you are looking for taking your personal career to the next level.


President, Splice Digital Inc.


Taking the leap with David was the best thing I’ve ever done.

It was hard work but he helped me to clarify who I really am and what I truly want out of life. We identified and removed the blocks that were holding me back. In a few short months, I left my job and started my own consulting practice. My experience with Audacious Results was truly remarkable.

Kerry McGrail CPA, CA

Owner, McGrail Solutions

David’s expertise in personal development, combined with his genuine desire to see his clients succeed, makes him an outstanding coach. I am grateful for his help in unleashing my full potential and achieving my dreams. Thanks David!

Steven Aanen

Co-Founder & CTO, Obeyo

Before I could not really imagine succeeding in a job that I truly loved and didn’t feel like hard work.

David’s coaching enabled me to reconnect with my passion and remove barriers I had myself created. Suddenly, many exciting projects became possible. Through our work, I reconnected with the energy that comes with jumping into a new venture that I am truly passionate about and debunked many preconceived ideas that were holding me back.

Vadim M. MBA

Chief Executive Officer, Lagardère Capital UAE

David is providing an extraordinary degree of leadership development (and much-needed moral support!) through the critical stages of Sunny Irrigation’s growth. His guidance keeps our team cohesive and ensures that our company remains firmly in a sales posture and avoiding analysis paralysis. I couldn’t recommend him enough to entrepreneurs of high-growth enterprises, especially in the tech and social impact sector.

Rick Sheridan

CEO, Sunny Irrigation/EMSKE Phytochem

David’s positivity and inquisitive demeanor are just two of the tools he uses to help his clients succeed. I would highly recommend David for anyone who is focused on continuous improvement and looking for new ways to develop and grow.

Gareth Gibbons

Vice President, Pension Legal & Plan Policy, OMERS

I had the privilege of working with David through his 90 day coaching program. He is empathetic, kind and effective. His process yields results quickly and are long lasting. His combination of using his tech platform in between our coaching sessions allowed for accountability seamlessly integrated into my daily routine. He was able to coach me through blind spots and rediscover the real me. I’m incredibly grateful for the work we did together and highly recommend working with him.

Yousuf Khatib

CEO and Co-Founder, Global Skills Hub

“My marriage had fallen apart and I could feel myself circling the drain. Living was a chore. David was recommended to me by concerned friends and I have never looked back. Today, my life is happy, challenging and exciting. I now see the world as potential and a place for me to grow.”

Stuart McCluskey, MD, PhD, FRCPC

Staff Anaesthesiologist, Toronto General Hospital

David Furlong was an excellent coach and guide when I needed clarity around my career goals and aspirations. I received private coaching with him when I was trying to make major life decisions on how to level-up the projects I founded and solidify my career goals for future financial success.

David provided an easy and accessible framework to help me understand how to streamline my work, set integral missions based on my long term vision and develop a process to begin to map out a step by step guide to promoting my talents and skills. His sessions allowed me to recognize gaps in the way I was working and immensely improve my time management and day to day effectiveness.


Ada Slaight Chair Of Contemporary Painting and Drawing, OCAD University

Empowering is the word that comes to mind when thinking of my journey with David. The program helped me just when I needed it. I’ve been given tools to go further and think bigger. If you want to take back control then I suggest this is the place to do so.

Matthew Jabbar

Surveyor, Cavendish Maxwell UAE

I am a firm believer that everyone you meet in life crosses your path for a reason. The universe brought David to me at a time when I was going through a tumultuous life change and could no longer see the forest for the trees. He is truly gifted at what he does and has helped me peel through layers of years of self-doubt and self-punishment so I could see the light again.

Working with David and Audacious Results Coaching for three months was more constructive than years of therapy. He is a truly gifted life coach, his intuition, perception and most of all genuine heart and care made it easy to expose the darkest corners of my soul to him. David has provided me with the tools I need on a daily basis to move forward through life with positivity, self-acceptance, and purpose.

Lesley SKOK

David, from day one, was clear, concise, and purposeful. It was like he rested a lantern of light into my darkness, the places within me that had either lay dormant from shame or lack of use….and he helped me pick those pieces up, hold them and see in them again their magnificence and potential. Literally, to see the “old” in a new way. He helped smoothly transition me out of each hole I was in firmly yet compassionately like a wise Sherpa going up a very sacred mountain.

In a blanket statement,  David shakes the dust from your soul while painlessly holding your feet to the fire of purpose so that your most authentic self can shine and breathe and once you take that first clear breath you see new roads and have fresh perspectives that just were not possible before knowing David. He is incredibly gifted in what he does and in how he does it.

Anyone can learn methodologies, but it takes innate gifts to be guided to help optimize and transform people on this earth like David does. I would recommend him to anyone seeking help in a transition or to optimization.

I had read many self-help books, been to councilors and therapists; you name it, I tried it. I had been in many unsatisfying jobs and worked with David on changing old, destructive habits that have held me back from creating the life that I want and deserve. 

David’s honest, caring, insightful approach ensures I can confidently go in the direction of my dreams, free from the blocks I didn’t realize I had. I shall always be grateful to him for his inspiration and guidance in helping me reach my potential and becoming a better ‘me’. 

I encourage everyone to make the call to David that can change everything!!

“David’s been fantastic in helping me deal with all sorts of personal and professional issues that hold me back from maximizing my true potential. He’s like Tony Robbins meets Sigmund Freud. Very helpful. Very insightful. Non-judgemental. Incredibly compassionate.”

R. L.


I have been working with David for a month and a half and in that short time, David has helped me move past areas of my life that years of therapy and medication never could.  David has helped me to see that my past and what happened in it is not the truth and not who I am and it never was; he showed me how to let the radiant light shine through rather than focusing on the speckled darkness.

David has begun moving me headlong into making my goals a reality, he is helping me figure on what I want and need in my life and career by solidifying my goals and having a laser-like focus on them. He has a very gentle way of working with me, his kindness and support, his intuitive way, his honesty and his directness is wonderful and refreshing, he always tells me exactly what I need to hear (even if I don’t want to hear it).

Working with David has been a life changing, AH-HA moment. If you’re ready for a big change and a serious move forward, I recommend Audacious Results Coaching services to anyone and everyone.

Jessica Nicholson

The circumstances of my life were overwhelming when I began my coaching sessions with David. Almost instantly he helped me release myself of all the blockages that were preventing me from being unsealed and the real me.

I feel unstoppable and am producing incredible results. His services would be a deal at 10 times the price. Getting through such a difficult time in my life with this much power truly feels amazing.

Brinn N.

General Council, High-Rise Capital

I enrolled into David’s 90-day program, and within weeks, the people on my team saw a drastic positive change in how I approached high-stress situations, how I communicated with them and how I made better choices based on relevant criteria vs. emotions and ego.
David’s ability to help me see the core causes and beliefs that I base my decision-making process on to alter them, so they are in alignment with my end goals have been invaluable. David’s compassionate approach to helping me realise the most damaging and challenging aspects of myself quickly helped me overcome them with confidence and clarity. If you need to achieve audacious results in your business, David Furlong will be a huge asset to you and ultimately your organization.
Paul Marek

Founder & CEO, MiDATA

I worked with David on a new aspect of my design business. His coaching style is direct, honest, open and completely supportive. The guidance, knowledge, and understanding he brings to every meeting along with an ability to get to the heart of obstacles is truly inspiring. I will not hesitate to recommend David’s service to anyone who has a desire to reinvent themselves. Audacious Results invaluable help can be life-changing.

Anne Renshaw

President, Petit Suite Garage Conversion

I was very resigned in several areas of my life. I requested David to be my coach because from I knew he would be able to help me get back on track.

Fast forward 3 months and beyond other results, I am fulfilling a long time dream and opening up a contemporary dance company. Most surprisingly, contracts and people wanting to support are coming to “me”  which is amazing! I recommend David and Audacious Results for what ever you want to accomplish in your life.

Lisa Emmons

Artistic Director, Aeris Körper

David organized a full day workshop on “investor pitch training” as part of the NETVA program run by the French Embassy in Canada.

Each year we choose 5 French innovative startups to undertake a week-long immersion to help them discover and understand the Canadian high-tech market.

In a short period of time, David effectively prepared our representative companies for a North American pitch competition, very different from the one we have in Europe. He helped the entrepreneurs better articulate and craft their message to attract investors and partners. The entrepreneurs rapidly trusted David as he was able to take each different personality into account and give personalized advice.

We saw immediate results during the pitch competition that evening, with 2 of the 3 startups participating, ranking in 2nd and 3rd place. The entrepreneurs benefited a great deal from David’s work and we would definitely recommend him to any startup wanting to perfect their pitch, and to any entrepreneur needing to build confidence.

Sophie Decamps, PhD

Consulate General of France in Toronto

I was happy in my career but worked long hours, always said yes (happily) and knew there could be more excitement and passion in my work. With a baby on the way, it was important to find balance and joy in career so I could be the mom, wife and professional I always wanted to be.

Through my work with David, I saw so many possibilities I had never imagined before. My previous beliefs about what a successful career and life were shattered.

Amanda Purdy

Organizational Change Management Lead, Bank of Canada

Working with David has been an eye-opening experience. He has helped me unlock new opportunities with the tools and guidance shared throughout the 3-month program. If you’re looking for a positive twist on your approach to life and what it throws at you, David is the right person to help! Super engaging and transformational process.

Noorissa Khoja

Senior Product Manager, MUNCH:ON

David dared me to dream, and by doing so we began a series a call’s each week that progressed me quickly towards my goals and redefined my actions to become meaningful and powerful.

Before talking with David, I would spend vast amounts of energy doing things that had little effect towards my goals, and now I have learned the power focus brings, the benefits of saying no, and the success of following weekly goals.

David is a coach, a mentor, and a listener. He is someone who brings insight and clarity into a world of infinite possibilities.

Michael Hoppe

Creative Director, Geopogo

Working with David was an incredibly eye-opening experience. He helped me to see who I was being and what was stopping me from moving forward in many areas of my life where I felt trapped. It had been a year of much upheaval in my life, and I wasn’t sure which way to go. I’d lost my job of 16 years, and I felt suspended in limbo while time passed me by.

The tools David shared with me, gave me tremendous insight into my personality traits and strengths, but more importantly my weaknesses and those traits that were stopping me from taking the next steps. Gaining this knowledge was priceless and gave me the courage to go for it – to break free and forge ahead into the life I really want to create for myself! He helped me see my true worth, my true values and what it is I really want.

Now I am building a solid client base while working from home – something I thought I’d never had the self-discipline to do. I’m excited to wake up each morning and dive into the next creative project!

Thank you, David, for helping make my year and for giving me the tools to go forward with a renewed and vivacious form of myself. Thank you for my freedom!

Laura Mark

Owner, Pink Daisy Design

When I met David, I had just quit my job as a lawyer in private practice. I was no longer engaged in my work and I had lost sight of my personal passions. While I was confident about my decision to quit, I was unsure about my future direction. I signed up for David’s 90-Day program and quickly realized that his coaching would become instrumental in helping me during my difficult leap into the unknown.

David is an organized and well-prepared coach, but he is also spontaneous, receptive and adept at tailoring his program to your particular circumstance. He is a positive and creative thinker, as well as honest and encouraging. His coaching fostered and steered the exact type of self-reflection and self-discovery that I needed. With his help, I was able to confidently decide to accept a position with a company that is exciting and engaging. At the same time, he helped me to realize how important it is to balance my professional life with my personal life and creative pursuits. He is an excellent coach and I would highly recommend working with him if you are looking for positive change in your life.

In-House Counsel, Toronto

These three words stand out for me as I reflect on my coaching journey with David- heart, insight, and essence.

David always approached me from a heartfelt and compassionate space. This enabled me to trust and be completely honest with him, which is essential to the success of the process. This combined with David’s capacity for deep insight was a powerful force, that helped me confront and move through personal challenges.

David’s commitment to serving what is true for me, moved me closer and more fully into my essence.

If you are looking to take your next big step, it is my experience that Audacious Results will be of great support towards living your life’s purpose.

David Furlong is truly gifted at his work. I met David through my own search for someone that could help me get unstuck after many setbacks. He has been brilliant helping me develop my business plan and guiding through some very tough spots when I was falling short of confidence and leadership. Fast forward, I have launched my Equine Guided Wellness business and I have just been nominated for a Chamber of Commerce Virtue Award.

I would highly recommend David to everyone who wants to make a commitment to themselves to move their lives, teams, and goals forward. I truly trust and respect David’s work, and appreciate his authentic approach and professional delivery.
