Here’s a little bit about us
The Taurus Story
25 years, 1000 brands, across 4 continents with people we ‘get’ across industry
Taurus began in 1995 when Founder & CEO Sharon Williams was personally chosen by Tech Entrepreneur Peter Kazacos, former CEO of The KAZ Group, to help build the KAZ brand into the largest IT services company in Australia. Peter sought and selected Sharon personally from her international reputation with Global Tech Start up and IBM Business Partner Synon Inc. Working together with Peter and the Directors directly, through acquisitions, KAZ became the most successful IT IPO float of the year in 2003 when the company sold for $340m.
Based on this success, referrals to Taurus grew and while our sweet spot remains B2B tech companies, as our long- term clients and captains of industry have branched into other sectors, so have we! We’ve had extraordinary wins with B2C, consumer, NFP, professional services and education and run Australia’s largest community campaigns too.
Life at Taurus, is about a genuine care factor and doing great work with people we like!

We are proud our entrepreneurs come back to us time and time again
Taurus clients range from single entrepreneurs with a big idea, to established smart and disruptive entrepreneurs to major ASX-listed corporations & their global Marketing Teams. Generally Taurus works at CEO, Board and Founder, Serial Entrepreneurs, C-Suite Executives but we also enjoy working with dynamic Marketing Managers & Communications Professionals.
Our geographical reach spans 4 continents, having worked in London, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia. Our clients come to us from overseas to enter the Australian market, or to grow their presence from an Australian base. We have worked with brands based in Paris, London, the US, New Zealand and Asia. Locally we work with CEO’s in every State.

Understanding the fundamental differences allows us to tweak each campaign differently to target the correct decision-makers, at the right time & in a winning way.

Feedback from our Clients
TeleWare Australia and New Zealand, General Manager, Richard Adams“Absolutely outstanding! Taurus has got the market completely wired. We’re getting a lot of press – we couldn’t have picked a better agency for PR. Taurus knows our industry, knows the media, and their long-term success with client relationships in the US proved distance was no barrier to them. Our aim was to educate our market in the most cost-effective way and Taurus has achieved this. Before, it was a matter of ‘Teleware – who?’, now it’s ‘Teleware – I’ve heard of them’. Taurus and the people behind the organisation – I trust implicitly with my business!”
Esker Software, Managing Director, James Elkington“We signed up several new deals, directly attributable to the coverage Taurus gained for us in The Financial Review, a first for us in Australia. The publicity Taurus achieved for us in well known publications raised our profile and created awareness of our technology.”
CEO Magazine, Managing Director, Daniel Di Loreto“After considering numerous PR and Marketing agencies that excel in the business and executive space, one stood out from the crowd – Taurus Marketing. After talking to Sharon, Valerie and the team, it was evident that we had made the right decision by commissioning Taurus Marketing to undertake the scope of work. The team provided a strategic vision and direction followed by a sharp execution, which delivered results that exceeded our expectations.”
Cybertrust, General Manager of Commercial Sales, Jennie McLaughlin“In Taurus we have a whole team at our fingertips, from writing brochures that translate our industry jargon into plain English, to slick creative and events that go off without a hitch. We turn on senior resource like a tap.”
Small Business & Regional Development, Executive Director, Enterprise, Michael Cullen"Your involvement as a speaker this year has greatly contributed to this success of the program and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for your time and effort in putting together your presentation. We look forward to working with you again in the future."
Owner & Manager, Host my Home, Julie George"I engaged Taurus to assist in promoting my book - Million Dollar Host and to establish me as an Industry Leader in the ‘sharing economy’. Within a four-week time frame the Taurus Team were able to get me national exposure through Radio, TV and Online publications. The result of this exposure was beyond my expectations! I highly recommend Taurus as being ultimate professionals and offering a fantastic value for money service.”
Exhibition Supplier, Ben Russell“I have worked with Taurus on numerous display and exhibition jobs over the last five years. All with great results for our customers! In the display industry deadlines are always crucial (the show will not wait!). Despite the pressures that these deadlines add to the task at hand, I have not once seen Taurus let their customer down, but rather always willing and able to take control of the situation. They are always cheerful and a pleasure to deal with.”
Zone Labs, a Check Point Company, International Public Relations Manager, Ally Zwahlen"I work with PR agencies internationally and the best are those that allow the client to feel they are thinking about your business all the time, and are always alert for ways to promote you – they never switch off. This is Taurus."
ConnXion, CEO, David Colvin“PR is essential for a publicly-listed company like us; I can plot spikes in shareholder support when we get in the press.”
GiggedIn, Edwin Onggo“The Taurus team were great to work with. We ended up getting a great response from a number of the mastheads and I was very happy to have them work on our project.”
