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
2OPHealth, Director and Psychiatrist, Dr. Frank Chow"The Taurus team is really fun to work with. Sharon is very approachable and has given me a lot of wisdom and knowledge. The team is very professional, systematic and very efficient. Great work ethic and client follow ups. Now, I have a lot more clarity in terms of marketing and business plan. I feel more reassure and confident partnering with Taurus and receiving their ongoing marketing support, advice and guidance.”
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.”
Napoleon Perdis, Emanuel Perdis"The Taurus Team are a pleasure to deal with. They are fast, effective and single-mindedly focused on deliverables. One of the most respectable Publicists I have ever met. It is a pleasure to do business with her & Taurus.”
KAZ Group, Managing Director, Peter KazacosTaurus PR expertise keeps the KAZ name at the forefront of business news. The tailored approach means we get excellent coverage time after time.
MYOB, Chief Strategy Officer , Dominic O’Hanlon“Sharon in particular, but a number of her staff as well, have helped me in the way I think about the business and the way that I build the brand, not in the way I build the brand for myself personally, but how I build the brand for the company. I think I’ve gained more from Taurus, not by using them to do what I wanted to do, but by listening to what they advice me to do. It’s like if you sit in a room with a business mentor, or a coach or somebody that really has a depth of knowledge in their chosen field, that’s certainly something that Taurus brings to the table and has brought to the table for me throughout the last fifteen years of my career.”
TeleWare Australia & New Zealand, Managing Director, Mike Blanchard"Absolutely outstanding! Taurus have got the market completely wired. In our first month we got a page in The Australian and that has culminated in the front cover of Voice & Data. We couldn't have picked a better agency for PR. Taurus and the woman behind the organisation - I trust implicitly with my business!"
2OPHealth, Director and Psychiatrist, Dr. Frank Chow“I was uncertain with the business and marketing strategies prior to engaging with Taurus. Through the Taurus Bullseye™ strategy session, I received the marketing strategy proposal that actually doubles up as a business strategy proposal which has been really helpful with my business planning."
MPower, Managing Director, Paul Sharp“The work we did with Taurus in strengthening our brand, was a key reason to MPower being awarded a major project in a new market in engineering excellence.”
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."
Growth Director, Attention Experts, George Hawwa"I feel the Taurus Profile really was like therapy for me as a business owner. It helped focus on the outcomes and profile as me as a business owner, as opposed to always focusing on the business brand with me as owner not considered. It aligned well. Sam and Sharon's delivery of my profile to me was extremely valuable and opened an insight on my profile I had not considered before. It has allowed me to focus and align on my next steps with a correct PR campaign"
