Feedback from our Clients
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."
Esker Software, Managing Director, James Elkington"With Taurus we got all the marketing expertise we needed without the risk of bringing on-board extra staff.”
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!”
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.”
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.”
CEO, ABCC, David McCredie"The ABCC has benefited from a long and successful relationship with Taurus. As our business has grown and adapted to the change in political landscape, so too has the offering from Taurus. Thanks to their hard work, the Chamber has been presented with opportunities to share our insights into issues including Brexit, infrastructure and fintech, and speakers at our events recently garnered significant media attention through our platform. I look forward to continuing to work with Taurus in 2018."
University of Sydney Student, Fei“I had the opportunity to see Sharon Williams speak as a guest lecturer at Sydney university. Immediately, I was impressed by her engaging speaking style which drew everyone’s attention. Her talk mainly focused on marketing and brand reputation, both topics that are very relevant to me. After hearing Sharon’s advice on how to maximise our brand image, I’ve made some adjustments to my own approach and I’ve only received positive results. Thank you Sharon!”
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!"
Osteoporosis Australia, CEO, Judy Stenmark“For our 2003 Bone Ball, we found Taurus innovative and efficient. 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.”
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.”
