Recommendations for Ken's Work

Thanks Ken, the briefing programme and tour you led around Liverpool was exactly what we needed - you were awesome! The whole project was a triumph!

      Susie Hay, CEO, Shortwork – The Nuclear Graduates Footprints Programme.

When he's not broadening perspectives and connecting people, Ken is one of the most erudite local historians and raconteurs. Highly entertaining and always informative.

      Phil Blything , Director , Glow New Media

Ken is an endlessly interesting local historian whose knowledge of Merseyside displays its diverse and rich past in vibrant detail. He is a superb story-teller with a unique ability to capture the imagination of his listener. His contacts are legendary which gives him the ability to grant you access to the heart of Liverpool and expand your understanding of how it beats. He organises wonderful journeys of discovery and revelation across the City and wider region.

     Sasha Deepwell, The Plus Dane Group

I am a very proud Liverpudlian and I live in Los Angeles, California, and visit my city around 2-3 times a year. I have read Ken's book and watched all his DVD's, and also spent a pleasant lunch with him. I consider my knowledge of Liverpool good, but Ken's depth and back-door wealth of knowledge about Liverpool is second-to-none and I cannot recommend him more strongly.

I also love his presentation and style, and his DVD's are excellent and well-presented for easy, but fascinating listening and viewing. I have shown them to several American's here who were equally impressed and vowed to visit Liverpool having watched his content. Ken is probably one of the most dedicated and knowledgable people in the City, and I recommend him most strongly for this role.

I have known Ken for over 10 years. Ken's networking ability is unsurpassed and his forensic knowledge of the Merseyside landscape makes him a supreme advocate and ambassador for the city and the professional that work in it. His inimitable presentation style and ability to captivate and motivate are legendary. I am looking forward to working more with Ken as he develops his network and services.

Ken's Selected Restaurants

Ken is a recognised Bon Vivant, who enjoys nothing more than a good meal in a restaurant - preferably paid for by someone else (but he always sings for his supper and is great value for money!). However, he is a gourmand of very discerning if eclectic tastes, and is only prepared to dine in a limited number of restaurants in Liverpool. And he says, "a high price is no guarantee of quality!"

Ken only includes a restaurant in his list if it provides consistently excellent food; served with style, courtesy, and a genuine welcome; in comfortable and elegant surroundings; and where the chefs and staff have a passion for cooking, and for entertaining guests.

He would like as many people as possible to share his most enjoyable dining experiences - and to support local businesses too. So he is now - for the first time, and in response to popular demand - making his restaurant list public. Please note that he does NOT receive commission, so this is an impartial, if highly subjective and personal list, and which is in alphabetical order only!

Ken will not accept any responsibility though, if your dining experiences do not match his own - but he believes you won't be disappointed - tell them "Ken Pye sent you"!
