Taurus began in 1995 when founder, Sharon Williams, was personally chosen by Peter Kazacos (former CEO KAZ Group) to help build KAZ into the largest IT services company in Australia. Since then we have looked for long-standing client relationships and many of our clients – and team members – are still with us. Over 23 years we have assisted over 1000 companies and been the proud recipients of State and National Golden Target Awards for PR and Marketing excellence.

We understand the needs of the client/agency relationship from both sides of the fence. In fact that’s why Taurus was created, our Founder wanted the ideal agency and commitment levels she would like to work with.

Feedback from our Clients
Kineo APAC, Managing Director, Vicky Bartolacci“Before Taurus, I did not see the value in social media and was reluctant to embrace it. Taurus provided me with much needed knowledge, support and a helping hand including encouragement. Through solid education, it allowed me to become self-sufficient and no longer found social media difficult or something I needed to procrastinate.”
ConnXion, CEO, David Colvin“It makes sound business sense for a company of our size and needs to work with an agency that offers a broad range of marketing, PR and creative services. I use Taurus as my marketing department.”
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."
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.”
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.”
Napoleon Perdis, Emanuel Perdis“Taurus is very well connected in terms of the necessary talent they need to complement their skills base and the people they bring in. Overall I’d rate the TaurusProfile and Taurus Engage services a nine out of ten."
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.”
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!"
Datacom, Business Development Manager, Frank Mastronardo"Before Taurus, we weren’t even on the media’s radar; now we have a steady stream of coverage."
Navigator, Managing Director, Nick Crawley“Having the Messaging and Positioning report at the early stages of our relationship with Taurus was great. It enabled us to focus exactly where we were now and gave us a clear indication of where we should be heading.”

Client Services Outcome
“The main benefit I’ve found is that Taurus raised our profile and helped us become recognised as a brand. With the publicity generated we’ve received recognition in the market-place, improved our image to staff, customers and suppliers and collected a large number of referrals.”
