About Plegmund

Plegmund Ltd is the company set up by successful entrepreneur Dr Peter Cook to provide help, support and guidance to small business owners in the North West.

Peter spent 35 years with the chemical giant ICI. He originally joined the firm as a chemical engineer working on the design and commissioning of vinyl chloride plants and later project managed the design and build of multi-million pound herbicide and chlorinated solvent plants in the UK and Far East. Peter is an inspiring leader and at the helm of SOG Ltd from its inception in 2000. It is largely his vision and enterprise that helped steer the company through challenging waters to become the hugely successful organisation it is today.

Having taken early retirement from SOG Ltd., Peter has set up as an independent consultant and is now pursuing his passion for helping and nurturing small local businesses and organisations to prosper and succeed. He is a powerful networker, an experienced mentor, and is proactive in supporting the local, regional and national business agenda through his role as Chairman of Halton Chamber of Commerce.

Why use Plegmund

Peter has many years’ experience of helping existing, new and small businesses and is well aware that business owners do not have time for long, complicated reports, nor the patience for jargon and business-speak. Everything he does is concise, expressed in plain English, and all costs in relation to the support package prepared are clearly defined at the outset.

His experience includes:

  • Working within an organisation that has direct hands on experience of changing the culture of a team from that of a large major corporate to a financially successful, small enterprise
  • Advising on management styles to gain maximum employee value and support
  • Access to a wide range of contacts in all sectors
  • Friendly, supportive, independent mentoring which recognises that it is your business and no-one else’s

It costs nothing for an initial meeting to find out if Peter can help you.
