Mike Rouse

Freelance Political Campaigning Consultant

Mike has been a campaigner in the UK’s Conservative Party since 2003, in a range of roles, but with a strong focus on innovations to help us do the one thing we need to win elections: identify voters and get them to vote.

Having successfully transition his home Association of Redditch to use modern campaign methods the Conservatives went on to win control of the Borough Council in 2018 – winning 5 wards, and in 2019 consolidated gains (against a rocky national picture) to gain a further ward, securing Conservative leadership in Redditch for years to come. This is is a significant achievement when you think Redditch was run by Labour for 36 out fo the last 42 years.

Mike’s abilities don’t just cover elections. He’s adept at fundraising, activist development, recruitment, incumbency, research, policy development, and is known as ‘meticulous Mike’ when it comes to selection procedures and governance of Council Groups and Associations.

Whether you are a Member of Parliament, a Parliamentary Candidate, a Councillor, a candidate for local elections, a Mayor, an Assembly Member, a Police & Crime Commissioner, a Group Leader, an Association Chair/Officer, or any other part of the Conservative Party family you will be able to find help and support to achieve your goals with Mike Rouse.
