TaurusAccelerator™

ENTREPRENEUR ACCELERATOR

In 1995, we were asked by entrepreneur and founder Peter Kazacos to help establish and grow the brand of his IT services company KAZ Group. It is a relationship that has stood the test of time and the co-founding KAZ Directors still work with us. We helped position the KAZ Group as one of Australia’s leading IT outsourcers, assisted them with their IPO float in 2000, the acquisition of Aspect in 2001, and through to the sale of KAZ to Telstra for some $356 million in 2007. Peter was our founding client and kick-started the Taurus enthusiasm to work with smart, successful entrepreneurs.

Since 1995, we have helped over 1000 entrepreneurs launch their businesses and personal brands in a wide range of industries from IT to beauty to sporting icons. We have been fortunate enough to assist corporate legends and industry leaders including Napoleon Perdis, Michael Bevan, James Elkington, Frank O’Halloran, Ian Kiernan and Dominic O’Hanlon.

If you want to establish and grow your business, and even take your company through to ASX Listing, call us now.

Feedback from our Clients

Osteoporosis Australia, CEO, Judy Stenmark

"We initially retained Taurus to manage press relations and secure Joan Collins as guest of honour for our annual fundraiser the ‘Bone Ball’. As a Not For Profit (NFP) organisation, value for money and results are of utmost importance to us as we have to justify every cent we spend, so we really appreciated the extra effort Taurus delivered. We find Taurus Marketing innovative, efficient and they possess an appropriate sense of urgency to progress projects. The team are always on hand and respond immediately and effectively to our requests. The work they produce is of a consistently high standard and Taurus is always willing to go beyond the call of duty to get the job done. Above all Taurus is friendly and approachable which makes working with them an easy, productive and enjoyable experience."

Client Services Outcome

“I didn’t have any reference point in what to expect in going ahead with PR. I was hesitant to go ahead because we felt we could do it ourselves or at least try and reach out to different media outlets and get the info and product across. But having said that we’re really happy we went with Taurus, because of what’s come out of it – such high-quality articles, very well written and big media publications! We are super happy with it. It’s super aligned with our target market and we definitely wouldn’t have been able to get that kind of quality ourselves.”

Adam Caspary, Founder, Doughlish

Taurus achieved coverage in The Daily Telegraph and this article was syndicated nationally. Other publications include Broadsheet, Pedestrian.TV, 2DayFM and TimeOut. The Sydney launch was a success with a total audience reach of 8, 467, 374 people in one week!
