20 years, 1000 brands, with people we ‘get’ across industry
Taurus began in 1995 when founder 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 our team 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 doing great work with people we like.

Feedback from our Clients
MPower, Managing Director, Paul Sharp“The Taurus team listened, heard us, formed their opinions, were very professional and delivered what they said they would deliver. It was this project that resulted in the step change in revenue in excess of 20% over a year and half since the re-branding exercise.”
Doughlish“Yes 100% if I was in the same position I would do the exact same thing again. I’d definitely recommend it to others and if I was to do something else (create another business) I would go down the same or very similar path again for sure. We’re definitely really happy with how it all came out and what result it got us.”
Objective Assessment, Managing Director, Beverley Jones“Without professional marketing you risk looking like an amateur and in today's business world no one wants to deal with an amateur. Taurus helped me define the business of Objective Assessment and communicate that in a compelling way. The responsibility to sell is still yours – Taurus gives you the tools to do it!”
KAZ Group, Managing Director, Peter Kazacos"Taurus worked with us on a broad range of projects including brochures and collateral, research and development of corporate case studies, copywriting and PR. Their PR expertise keeps the KAZ name at the forefront of business news. The tailored approach they use to put out a press release means we get excellent results time after time. The Taurus team are highly experienced with extensive industry knowledge and are a delight to work with."
Selfcert, Managing Director, Eoin Joyce“From Taurus we got sound strategic advice backed up with practical marketing tactics from skilled professionals. What particularly impressed us was the way Taurus always referred to ‘our’ business; we were working together from day one.”
Former Channel 7 , Robyn Foyster“Sharon Williams is a consummate professional. Sharon has appeared numerous times on Sunrise to talk about her role as a working mother and in her capacity as the CEO of Taurus Marketing. In my view, Sharon's enormous expertise on issues affecting women, experience in research, policy analysis and communication skills make her highly qualified.”
Maxon Australia, Director, Dana Baggetto“Once we’re in a magazine the exposure and word of mouth kicks in and sales climb.”
Insentra, CEO, Ronnie Altit"From start-to-finish we had open communication with Taurus, they understood us and the tech industry, and the Taurus team worked diligently from the get go. As a result, in a month, we got great press coverage where our brand was exposed to new audiences we otherwise wouldn't have reached."
Windsurfing Champion, Allison Shreeve“I just really love everyone here at Taurus, so whenever I hear the name Taurus or if I hear the name Sharon, or if we’re talking about her I always think of my wonderful friends here.”
Multiactive Software Pty Ltd, , Marketing Manager, James Granter"What really impresses me about Taurus Marketing and PR Services is their experience and total professionalism. They know how to get results in a very short period of time. Taurus’ flexibility means we can outsource to them those services we cannot handle in-house. The team is an excellent support to me, guiding me through tasks to ensure we get results."
