23 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
Esker Software, Former Marketing Co-ordinator, Anna Mascarello“While I worked with Taurus, they acted as my virtual marketing team. They played a vital role in Esker’s business – using their marketing experience to support the sales objectives of our company. The team at Taurus are strong on execution – delivering sales tools, case studies, press coverage and trade show support – as well as offering practical consultancy. I really valued their advice and opinion! I have to cover multiple tasks in my job. Taurus introduced both the processes and the content to make me a success.”
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.”
Former KAZ Group, General Manager, Marketing & Communications, Kevin Ryder"Taurus Marketing Services is more than a marketing agency, they are a support mechanism that totally underpins our marketing department. After seven years of working with us they still deliver work of the highest standard on time every time. As a large company in the public eye, our expectations are high and we expect ROI. Taurus understand our business and consistently impress us with the results they achieve."
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."
Snapdragon Consulting, Managing Director, Guy Riddle“On a scale of one to ten I would rate Taurus a definite ten. They fully understand our business and provide us with a fast, effective service that helps our business stand out from the crowd.”
Doughlish“I didn’t have any reference point in what to expect – hesitant to go ahead because we felt we could it ourselves or at least try and reach out different media outlet and try and get 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 is super aligned with our target market. And we definitely wouldn’t have been able to get that kind of quality ourselves.”
Playoust Churcher, Managing Director, Brett Churcher“The amount of new business we have gained through the website has been well beyond our expectations – to say we are thrilled with the results would be an understatement.”
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.”
Esker Software, Managing Director, James Elkington"The mentoring we received from Taurus meant our own internal marketing skills soared."
Advance – Association
Client Services Outcome
The Taurus team divided their approach to the awards into various strategies: Profiling the organisation itself, the CEO Serafina and those nominees for the awards. The results were outstanding and all parties worked together as a team. The nominees assisted with their own story and were profiled (some for the first time) in mainstream media on broadcast, radio and mainline dailies. The drip of news coverage ran for six months leading up to the event. On the night of the awards, journalists were invited to cover the breaking news when Greg Norman was announced as the Australian of the Year 2015.
