Rob’s an expert on fighting fake news, and developing digital campaigns.
In 2012, Rob became London Managing Director of Blue State Digital, the company famous for the digital part of Barack Obama’s election campaign.
He’s put these skills to use for the Lib Dems: As London Assembly candidate on the London list in 2016, Rob led the best digital campaign we’d ever run.
Through his Digital Campaign Group, over 700 Lib Dems have signed up to Rob’s email newsletter, and hundreds have attended his digital training sessions.
What Lib Dem campaigners say about the Digital Campaign Group
“Rob Blackie… runs an excellent email list full of tips for Lib Dem email campaigners.”
Mark Pack, Islington
“Digital campaigning is increasingly important and ever-changing. Rob and his emails are doing a great job of bringing an up to date approach to us Lib Dems and challenging common misconceptions about this area. I am continually impressed by his thorough approach and the practical value of his advice.”
Tom Simon, councillor for Belsize ward, Camden
