If the early bird catches the worm then Taihlaura is definitely our bird! Always up early thinking of the next big idea for her clients she is a driving force at Kingthing with an undeniable passion for all things in the digital space. Her favourite things are strategic planning, assisting with achieving the tactics in a marketing plan, social media management and digital advertising.
Taihlaura graduated with a Bachelor of Business in Marketing and Human Resource Management at UTAS in 2015. As an avid life-long learner she enjoys learning new things that she can utilise for her clients and for the team, often being called upon to lead our newest recruits in her role as Managing Marketing Consultant.
During her time at university Taihlaura juggled retail management alongside her studies, this time opened her eyes to the importance of bringing people into the city to support bricks and mortar stores - the lifeblood of our community. After being appointed to the board of Cityprom in 2019, Taihlaura combines her retail and marketing knowledge to encourage people to shop local to create job opportunities and entice younger generations to stay in Launceston.
In 2019 and 2021, Taihlaura was a finalist for the Young Professional of the Year at the Northern Tasmania Business Excellence Awards. This was a testament to her ongoing dedication to the community, her clients and the overall enthusiasm she puts into her work on a day to day basis.
Passionate about the Tourism industry, Taihlaura recently joined the Launceston Tamar Valley Tourism Association (LTVTA) board/committee and hopes to use her marketing prowess to provide more avenues for tourism operators in the area to discuss, share and learn.
In her spare time, Taihlaura loves visiting wineries around the state with friends, baking delicious treats (that we often get to be taste testers for) and volunteering for Make-A-Wish in the Launceston branch of which she is currently the President and Fundraising Coordinator! She’s a busy girl our Taihlaura that’s for sure.

I love having a day free to just bake (it doesn’t happen often with my calendar!). I've got a sweet tooth and love creating new things, my friends and family often call on me to make cakes, cookies and treats for special occasions. I also love working out at the gym to clear the mind.

What inspires you?
Helping others discover that lightbulb moment and watching them succeed. There’s nothing better than that.
Shake It Off by Taylor Swift.
If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do at Kingthing, what would it be?
I help people showcase their passions in a way that makes their product or service look valuable and authentic to customers. I also lead our team of consultants so I teach them how to do the same thing!
Rob won't stop whistling in the office, how do you distract him?
Offer him a race. He’ll most likely have an excuse about pulling a hammy but it’ll spark the competitive side in him!
What's your coffee/hot drink order?
I’m not a coffee drinker, but I do like a good authentic hot chocolate.
Who would you invite to a dinner party?
Zoe Foster Blake - she’d be a lot of fun to have around the dinner table and would love to pick her brain on how to run a successful business.
If you could be a world champion in any sport, what would it be?
Anything that Rob answered as I’d like to beat him! Haha.
What would be your ultimate three course meal?
A cheese platter for entree, a wood fired pizza for main and a chocolate raspberry tart from Delicious Little Things to finish things up.
