Feedback from our Clients
WebCentral, Manager of Corporate Communications, Monique Roberts“As a team, Taurus and WebCentral punch well above our weight! With Taurus, we’ve never been just another client. They work tirelessly to bring us the best opportunities and always have our interests at heart. I’m thrilled with the help and results we get from Taurus.” From day one Taurus came 100% on board behind WebCentral’s objectives and strategy. We are a fast-growing company so the top tier coverage we’re getting in media like The Australian’s IT section is important to us in the market, and proves our messages are relevant. Working with Taurus has completely changed my previous perceptions of just what an agency can do for us.”
Bible Society CEO, Daniel Willis“Both Taurus’ team and our team here at Bible Society worked hand in glove, daily, to bring about the overall objectives. It’s been a very good relationship. We rolled out a daily program on Twitter to engage people and we picked up a Facebook fan following, and again we looked at feeding that daily with comments and information so that people could respond to the campaign. As a result of that, today we’ve got something like 25,000 regular users on that Facebook page and they constantly engage with the ongoing aspects of Jesus – All About Life.”
Trans-Tasman Business Circle, CEO, John Weiss“Sharon in particular reaches out into new media, into new areas in which she integrates and links back to all of her clients, so I found it a very wide and embracing approach to the mission that we’re on, which is to make a name.”
Former KAZ Group, General Manager, Marketing & Communications, Kevin Ryder"Taurus are our right hand when it comes to PR and Marketing Services. 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. The team are highly responsive and totally dependable. Working with Taurus has helped us mature our entire PR approach."
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."
Exhibition Supplier, Ben Russell“I have worked with Taurus on numerous display and exhibition jobs over the last five years. All with great results for our customers! In the display industry deadlines are always crucial (the show will not wait!). Despite the pressures that these deadlines add to the task at hand, I have not once seen Taurus let their customer down, but rather always willing and able to take control of the situation. They are always cheerful and a pleasure to deal with.”
Objective Assessment, Managing Director, Beverley Jones“Without professional marketing you risk looking like an amateur and in today's business world no one wants to deal with an amateur. Taurus helped me define the business of Objective Assessment and communicate that in a compelling way. The responsibility to sell is still yours – Taurus gives you the tools to do it!”
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."
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.”
AO Chairman and Founder of Clean Up Australia Day, Ian Kiernan"The support of Taurus throughout the 2011 campaign was great. The vast media coverage they helped us achieve spread our message far and wide, encouraging all Australians to get involved. The dedicated Taurus team was completely committed to getting us the greatest exposure possible; it was a huge achievement."
