'The Rebel Chef' Gary Usher cooks up a storm at Great British Speakers!

4th November 2019

Known for his straight-talking attitude, he's certainly a character you wouldn't forget in a hurry. 

This paired with his incredible and record-breaking achievements makes him a perfect guest speaker for a number of events....

Gary has long been famed for his crowdfunding expertise, which has allowed him to open five restaurants (he has six in total) in the North West. In 2010 the chef opened Sticky Walnut in Chester using funds from more traditional sources; as he looked to build a small empire - now called Elite Bistros - circumstances pushed him to find capital from elsewhere.

Pinion broke a Kickstarter record when the concept raised £50,000 in less than an hour. Though the figure was beaten this year by Usher's latest restaurant (£200,000 for Kala in Manchester, making it the fastest funded restaurant Kickstarter campaign in the world) Pinion attracted the attention of Channel 4, where a documentary titled ‘The Rebel Chef: My Restaurant Revolution’ aired recently.
