Frank Smith has over 18 years experience working in international advocacy, leading global advocacy campaigns on a range of issues and in a range of different organisations and contexts. Over the last year he has been working as a consultant, supporting organisations develop their advocacy capacity and their advocacy strategies so as to improve their overall influence.
His advocacy work in the humanitarian, human rights and international development fields has given me a deep understanding of the international landscape. He has worked closely with different UN organisations, most recently the UNHCR, working as a consultant.
