Politicians, Mosaic Associates, and young people with serious aspirations mingled together at a unique Mosaic event with legendary campaign strategist Lynton Crosby at the Houses of Parliament.
The purpose of ‘An Evening with Lynton Crosby’ was to encourage young people from minority communities who have a keen interest in politics and want to get more involved in the political process.
Tory party campaign strategist Lynton Crosby masterminded successive election victories for Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, and has been described as the ‘master of the dark political arts’, ‘Australia’s Karl Rove’ and ‘the best campaign manager in the world’. He led the Conservative party’s campaign in the 2005 general election, and managed the campaign that saw Boris Johnson beat Ken Livingston in the London Mayoral election. Mr Crosby rarely speaks publicly about his work – which is why we were so delighted to have him speak to the young people and Mosaic Associates.
Mosaic’s Associates are a dedicated and diverse group of successful and influential individuals from mainly business and professional backgrounds. They are committed to Mosaic’s mission to support disadvantaged children and young people from deprived communities in the UK, and demonstrate their support through financial giving.

Take a look at some of the feedback we received after the event:
- “Congratulations on an excellent evening! A powerful insight into the corridors of power, in the corridors of power.”
- “An excellent event on so many levels. Personally, I wasn’t expecting to warm to Lynton in the way I did. I thought there were some excellent questions from our young people.”
- “I have learnt a great deal, and they have inspired me further to get involved with politics.”
- “I actually used to work in the House of Commons for a year and can honestly say that the hours this afternoon/evening definitely beat that year in terms of me feeling that I could make a difference. I think the work you are doing is fantastic and one that should be supported.”
