Feedback from our Clients
PACT Global, Director, Colin Morris“The Taurus team are very impressive. They presented in a positive and encouraging manner with a great deal of confidence. Importantly, Taurus are extremely well connected with the media in our business sector.”
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.”
Bible Society CEO, Daniel Willis"Taurus came into the campaign at the last minute, but created a huge impact with the press. The number of media hits was exceptional and more than we ever imagined. A highlight for us was the sheer scope of media we gained, prime time television, national radio, daily newspapers and online. The campaign is now being used by three University’s as a marketing case study due to its phenomenal success."
Aussiepay, Managing Director, Dean Morelli“When Workchoices legislation was as its most topical, Aussiepay appeared in the media 23 times, including four interviews in The Australian Financial Review over the course of eight days.”
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."
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."
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!”
Zone Labs, a Check Point Company, International Public Relations Manager, Ally Zwahlen"The outstanding coverage achieved by Taurus in Australia has been picked up in other regions so the impact was huge, and it has showed us all just what is possible."
Former Stellar Group General Manager Sales, Scott Deane“The Taurus plan was a practical document that still gets used today. It set the framework for our way forward and now our own marketing team are running with it.”
Ansarada, Managing Director, Sam Riley“Taurus provides PR that is very strategic and brilliantly executed. It is exactly the PR that resonates well with the bankers and lawyers who are our potential clients.”
