BiographyAugust 1946 By the August of 1946 Ken was retrained as a salesman with Thomas Hedley (soap manufacturers). This was during the post war period of petrol and soap rationing. Car mileage was restricted, which meant walking with a large suitcase, which was heavy with samples, around a designated Dock Road area in North Liverpool. He had a supplier for extra petrol coupons, but his confused returns to management led to enquiries as to how a Ford 10 achieved an 86 mpg average. Following a bump in the car in a snow storm taking family to a pantomime, he decided, as all soap products could only be supplied on ration coupons, that the nightly counting of thousands of soap coupons, and allocating precious unrationed candles was not worth the aggro and he therefore resigned before being pushed.1 
BiographyJanuary 1947 He was appointed as an Assistant Sales Manager at Peter Lunt during January 1947. They were soap and polish makers.1 
BiographyAugust 1948 Ken's mother drew his attention to an advertisment in the Liverpool Daily Post during August 1948. It was for a Concerts Manager to the Liverpool Philharmonic Society. He resigned from the soap world and was engaged by the society as Concerts Manager; primarily to promote an idea first suggested by Sir Malcolm Sargent, to popularise symphony concerts in an endeavour to retain the audiences developed during the War. In the pre-war period only seasonal subscription concerts for Society members were given. Post war the orchestra was in full time salaried employment and an income to support that had to be developed. The Arts Council of Great Britain was only in its infancy and grants from that source and local authorities were in short supply; a situation that has existed to date. The series was successfully developed and became known as the Merseyside Industrial Concert scheme. Similar schemes followed by the other major regional orchestras and the London Philharmonic. Regional concert tours, and concert series in other towns were also developed.1 
BiographyAugust 1952 In August 1852 Ken was appointed the General Manager and Secretary of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra at a time when it was in difficulties with the Musicians Union and the City Council concerning grants. He reorganised the administration, settled the dispute with the Musicians Union, auditioned (with Principal Conductor Rudolf Schwarz) all musicians making changes where necessary , persuaded the Board to increase string strength, planned and booked the next two years seasons with different programme/concert patterns and arranged more concerts outside Birmingham. Meanwhile , and as one of the founding members of the Orchestral Employers Association (now called the Association of British Orchestras) he negotiated in London with the Musicians Union, BBC, and Opera Houses, to establish a first time national standard contract for orchestral musicians.

In the September of 1954 Ken produced the final Bournemouth report and the findings were accepted. He rejected an offer from Yorkshire Symhony Orchestra and also declined the offer of his appointment as Deputy General Manager of the Royal Festival Hall, London. He then moved his family to Bournemouth.1 
BiographyMarch 1953 In March 1953 Ken resigned following a major disagreement with the Chairman concerning administrative responsibilities. In his book 'Crescendo' published in 1995 and written to mark the 75th anniversary of the CBSO, Beresford King-Smith writes "Matchett's detailed reports were never brought to the Committee, (by the chairman) but all his major recommendations were adopted over the following couple of years. It was a discreditable episode, and in the long run it was Birmingham's loss, for Matchett went on to become the long serving, shrewd and highly respected General Manager of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, seeing it safely through some of its darkest and most difficult days." Ken returned with his family to Liverpool. He was, except for a few months employment as a biscuit salesman, unemployed for the remainder of 1953.1 
BiographyFebruary 1954 In February 1954 he was engaged as the Touring and Business Manager of the Carl Rosa opera company for a Spring tour of the provinces and Glasgow. This was on the recommendation of the Arts Council.1 
BiographyJune 1954 In the June of 1954 he was engaged as a consultant by the Winter Gardens Society, Bournemouth. This was an amateur concert goers support club for the Municipal Orchestra which had been given notice as the Council had refused to accept a Musicians Union claim to place the musicians on the new national standard contract; which would have the effect of raising wages but reducing contract hours. The brief was to ascertain the possibility of maintaining an orchestra in Bournemouth to replace the sacked municipal orchestra of fifty four musicians. The assessment and recommendations were to be also considered by the Arts Council. The Society, on the basis of a preliminary report, guaranteed players wages to fulfil the cancelled summer season.

In the September Ken produced his final Bournemouth report and his findings were accepted. He rejected an offer from the Yorkshire Symhony Orchestra and also declined an offer of appointment as the Deputy General Manager of the Royal Festival Hall, London. He then moved his whole family to Bournemouth.1 
BiographyOctober 1954 In the October of 1954, having negotiated local authority and Arts Council grants. Ken formed the Western Orchestral Society Ltd. He convened the first Board of Management and was engaged as General Administrator to form the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra of seventy six contracted musicians with Charles Groves as conductor.1 
Biography1955 In 1955, following the Arts Council's decision to close all regional offices, he formed (with Cyril Wood an ex Arts Council director) The South West Arts Association. This was the first of many to be developed nationally. They later became known as Regional Arts Associations and were jointly financed by Local Authorities and Government.1 
Biography During his time in Bournemouth Ken took up sailing.1 
Biography Ken successfully promoted Society membership and functions and many series of concerts throughout the South and West regions. He arranged recording contracts, radio, television broadcasts as well as performances in national festivals, London appearances. The Bournemouth Orchestra undertook appearances abroad for the first time. These included them being the first British orchestra to tour behind the Iron Curtain accompanied by the Bolshoi Ballet. They appeared at the Bath and Edinburgh Festivals, and regularly accompanied the Welsh National and Glyndebourne Operas.

To succeed Sir Charles Groves, Ken appointed Constantin Silvestri. Following his death, Paavo Berglund was appointed as principal conductors thereby establishing an international reputation for quality of performance.

To fulfil the concert needs of smaller towns and venues, and in particular educational concerts, Ken formed the Bournemouth Sinfonietta. He employed 108 musicians.

For a number of years he instigated a Young Conductors Competition sponsored first by the Gulbenkian Foundation and later by Players cigarettes. They awarded three year apprenticeship conductor contracts to, among others:
- Nicholas Braithwaite
- Kenneth Montgomery
- James Loughran
- Simon Rattle.

During the years he trained in orchestral management, whilst members of staff :
- Arthur Baker - appointed General Manager CBSO
- Barry Hall - Head of BBC Third programme publicity
- Barry Iliffe - Director British Council
- David Blenkinsop - International Festival Artistic Director, Perth Australia.

Throughout these years the Bournemouth Council had been a reluctant financial partner in the exercise and was increasingly placing restrictions on the orchestra's rehearsals and performances in its Winter Gardens thereby adding to the stress which sadly is the norm for all managers of subsidised orchestras in the UK. Ken persuaded Poole Council to redesign their proposed Arts Centre to make provision fora concert hall with a stage to accommodate a 200 voice choir and full orchestra together with rehearsal facilities and an administrative block. This is now the 'home' of the Society and orchestra.1 
BiographyNovember 1974 Ken retired from ill health in November 1974. Unfortunately this was before the completion of the new Poole Arts Centre.1 
Biography*14 June 1975 On 14th June 1975 In Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth Second's Birthday Honours list, appointed for services to music 'an Ordinary Officer of the Civil Division of Our said Most Excellent Order of the British Empire' ; presented by Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace in the presence of wife and two sons.

He was elected Honorary Member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians for 'public service to the art of music or kindred arts and sciences'.2,1 
BiographySeptember 1975 Following a conversation with Anthony Earl of Shaftesbury Ken spent the summer studying fish farming with a view to entering into a financial partnership and developing a trout farm on his Wimborne St Giles estate in Dorset.
