Feedback from our Clients
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."
Partner, Cor Cordis, Alan Walker“The performance of the Taurus team was excellent, they were very responsive, knowledgeable, professional and gave the impression that they were dedicating a lot of time and effort to the engagement.”
Artis Group, CEO & Board Member, Mark Bennett"Taurus engaged on day one as a partner who was vested in our business success, and consistently maintained that relationship throughout. From the executive oversight provided by Sharon Williams (CEO) to the daily communication and attention to detail on our marketing and communications activity from Jacqueline Cridland (Snr Acct Mng), I felt like Taurus was an extension of my leadership team and business not just a supplier. Taurus brought depth of experience in the technology sector to the table which proved invaluable as we tackled items from Brand to Social Media. Over six months we refreshed our company’s messaging, brand, portfolio, and focus within the market resulting in pipeline growth, increased win rates, and the ability to attract some new top talent into the business.”
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.”
Former Channel 7 , Robyn Foyster“Sharon Williams is a consummate professional. Sharon has appeared numerous times on Sunrise to talk about her role as a working mother and in her capacity as the CEO of Taurus Marketing. In my view, Sharon's enormous expertise on issues affecting women, experience in research, policy analysis and communication skills make her highly qualified.”
Napoleon Perdis, Emanuel Perdis“My persona in the media has been raised significantly. There is recognition and recall with regards to the coverage obtained and the things I feel important."
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.”
Former Prosperity Advisers, Anne Adams“Taurus has been a great asset for us to be able to secure media coverage and build connection with industry media in a meaningful way. I have always found the team to be responsive, strategic and to offer advice and ideas when needed. The Taurus team have always been there to assist when we needed it and are supportive during tight deadlines and equally understanding of our internal processes. When we needed encouragement, ideas or prodding to deliver, they were there for us. The relationship has evolved over time to be close and personalised which is rewarding both professionally and personally. Our practice has benefited from the volume and breadth of media exposure of the right sort by working the experienced team at Taurus for over 4 years.”
Trans-Tasman Business Circle, CEO, John Weiss“Far beyond my expectation. Detailed. Stretched. Inspirational.”
Connixon, Head of Strategy and Corporate Development , Catherine Reynolds“Sharon is the absolute heart of Taurus and the things that Sharon holds dear, being relationships and the networks and the connections that she has, and is extremely successful at maintaining, that really forms the core of the Taurus organisation and anyone who is working at Taurus becomes part of that network.”
