FrankAdvice creates great policy advice to support

better decisions.

We are a people-focused, policy advisory consultancy based in Wellington, providing strategic direction to help organisations make better decisions through quality consultancy.

Our team has worked extensively across the New Zealand government and with NGOs.

For FrankAdvice, effective decision-making is all about turning facts into compelling narratives. We work with data and operations teams, evaluators, and policy teams to help them build and deliver a persuasive argument to the people that matter. We use New Zealand and international evidence and models to work in partnership with our clients to create the outcomes they value.

The real value of our work is realised when decisions change and people live better lives as a result of the insight generated.

Topics covered in the programme range from high-level policy team infrastructure to the nuts and bolts of the policy toolkit. FrankCapability also offers bespoke courses to meet your specific needs.
