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
Ansarada, Managing Director, Sam Riley“I only have to look at the way Ansarada is growing- it’s extremely successful and Taurus has played a large part in that.”
ATS Training Systems, Managing Director, Frank Woods"We need a marketing department without investing in one, and that’s exactly what we get with Taurus.”
Napoleon Perdis, Emanuel Perdis“Through the TaurusEngage process, we gained perspective and clarity on our social media presence. It also revealed the need for integration with and across all my activities to create a stronger, more united presence for the Napoleon Perdis brand.”
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!”
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.”
KAZ Group, General Manager, Marketing & Communications, Kevin Ryder"With Taurus we have the dedicated services of senior PR professionals with close media relationships. I know that at any time I can call Taurus and get high-level strategic PR advice from experts. Working with Taurus has helped us mature our entire PR approach."
KAZ Computer Services Ltd, Marketing Executive, Marnie Withers"I have worked with Sharon and the Taurus team for over 15yrs. Her expertise in creating case studies for KAZ, and then Telstra after KAZ was sold, were instrumental in building the KAZ brand for sale from as early as 1995. Taurus created over 30 case studies for me during that time, as well as providing general business, marketing, events, PR and consulting advice to me personally, my Directors and my marketing team. The case study process was smooth and exceeded my expectations in terms of delivery, adherence to deadlines, quality, design and the range and depth of comment Taurus were able to extract from KAZ and Telstra customers with their full permission. I have no concerns that Taurus would be a reliable and competent supplier for Microsoft."
SecureData Group, Gina Burman"Taurus prepared case studies of the highest standard for SecureData Group. Their work really stands apart from anything we've previously commissioned. The Taurus team are efficient in keeping you up to date with their progress, maintaining almost constant contact. Taurus’ ability to gain customer buy in was outstanding. Our customers were truly excited by the prospect of having case studies prepared; they felt like stars! Taurus made our customers appreciate that it was a win–win situation and the testimonials Taurus extracted were so impressive they couldn’t have been better if we'd paid our clients to say it! The standard of the writing was excellent, with one of the case studies being placed in The Australian IT Section as the lead case study. You can’t say better than that!"
Fraame Solutions, CEO, Gavin Wright“The results Taurus helped us achieve have definitely increased Fraame’s profile. We are a still a reasonably small company but we have a solid profile, with good awareness.”
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.”
