Simon Mordant Philanthropist Financier

Simon Mordant Philanthropist Financier: imon, away from your full-time job, much of your spare time is dedicated to your philanthropic work. How do you keep going?

Firstly, I love my philanthropic work. I never tire of it. In fact it's the opposite. It drives me to want to do more. From the money we have raised for the renovations for the MCA we now have new gallery spaces, a new lecture theatre, rooftop terrace caf�and a national centre for creative learning. More than one million visitors have passed through our doors last year since these additions. To put that into context, our previous annual record was just under 600,000. Over a decade ago it was less than 100,000. This is something that I am proud of.
