Greg Secker is the founder of the Knowledge to Action Group and the Greg Secker Foundation where the former is a for-profit business conglomerate, and the latter is a non-profit. He is popular amongst upcoming businesspeople in London, Sydney, Manila, and Johannesburg because he has dedicated time and resources towards coaching and motivating them in their entrepreneurial journey. He also uses his non-profit organization to donate to charity and to help the needy navigate their way out of poverty. How he manages to do all that at only 42 is what makes him stand out among other entrepreneur and philanthropists.
Greg’s achievements make him a highly sought after personality, with many people wanting to hear his opinion on different topics, or to hear his journey story, and others interested to know who Greg is outside his public self. Ideamensch recently caught up with the legend and asked some of those questions on behalf of its readers. He explained that among the motivations that made him join entrepreneurship was boredom and the urge to educate people on the little that he knew about business. According to him, working in a bank was not as inspiring for him; it was boring to spend all day with only a computer to interact with. He quit his job and started coaching people through a premier coaching firm in England. To this end, his success is out for all to see.
Ideamensch also sought to know how Greg Secker efficiently cultivates his dreams and ideas to fruition. He said that he first ensures that he falls in love with his idea before he starts implementing it. He creates an illusion of the idea from the first step of the implementation process to the last, and that enables him to come up with a good strategy.
During his life as an employee, Greg Secker worked for Thomas Cook Financial services where he ran the Virtual Trading Desk™ and Mellon Financial Corporation where he was a senior executive. It’s after quitting Mellon that he decided to start Learn to Trade.
Under the leadership of Greg, Learn to Trade has won many awards, including Best Educator by World Finance Magazine in a couple of times.
