  • A solid action plan & be ready to execute

  • Know the shifting sands consumer & tech market

  • Create engaging content that gets attention

  • Have a call to action that actually works

Why us

Our philosophy

Rob Torok - Amago


Founder Rob offers high caliber solutions for the modern business providing vast analytical and technical expertise rarely seen in any Australian marketing communications agency.  Prior to Amago Rob had a 20+ year career as a national team leader and technical engineer at News Corp. This has placed Rob in good stead in developing superior communication solutions for Amago's client base. Rob's ingenuity in project management, attention to detail, breaking down complex concepts, and understanding business requirements to meet objectives is highly advantageous to any thriving business.

Rob is methodical, detail orientated, creative, loves accuracy, and certainty with people and projects.

Rob's not a fan of anything that's ambiguous, a prerequisite is radical transparency and integrity across the board. The gatekeeper of order and clarity for our team and clients. 

What Rob loves (only 3 are true) - 

- Research, building rapport and consensus

- Following loose online opinion over unequivocal data 

- Stability in business outcomes, being clear and concise
