Publishers Description: Living Large explores Harold Mitchells remarkable personal journey from son of a sawmiller to owner of a $100 million business, rubbing shoulders with Australias most powerful people.When Harold was sixteen, he secured a job at a Melbourne advertising agency just by virtue of having travelled the furthest for the interview. Living Large traces Mitchells journey as media buyer inside several agencies to his brave decision to start in 1976 his own media-buying operation, a radical and, to the established agencies, highly unpopular move. ;;Mitchell went on to become Australias biggest media buyer. His business journey led to close friendships with the two Kerrys, Packer and Stokes, and a long relationship with the Packer family. His passion for the arts saw him experience some colourful moments with Gough Whitlam, Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, Dudley Moore and folk singer Odetta. ;;Living Large reveals Harolds loves- family, a great business deal, a brilliantly produced TV commercial, and dislikes- disloyalty, laziness and business yobbos, and presents guidance for young business executives trying to make it in the jungle. ;;Part autobiography, part guidebook, Living Large gets into the mind of one of Australias most intriguing business identities.
