Arts and Public Life Breakfast 'Giving it away'
Entrepreneur, pioneering media buyer, one of the great figures of innovation and enterprise of whom Australia’s history is proud, Harold Mitchell has made philanthropy a personal quest. Through his Foundation he has given away more than $10 million to support social benefit in sport, music, and care for the abused and disadvantaged, particularly Indigenous people.
Some of his answer is that it has opened doors to new knowledge and offered synergies between business and social benefit. A third is that he loves to see what can grow from a needy investment. He likes to find out how things work and he loves to be surprised.
