Greg Secker is a Briton born on 18th 1975 in Norfolk. He then joined the University of Nottingham in 1997 where he studied food sciences and agriculture. Today, Secker is known to be a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, master trader, and more importantly an international speaker. He is also proud to be a father.
Secker is the brainchild behind the development of the Knowledge to Action Group in 2003, which he founded in 2003. This is a group of companies including Learn to Trade, Capital Index and FX Capital. There also exists Greg Secker Foundation which is a not-for-profit organization working to improve the quality of life around the globe. These organizations point out to one thing that Greg has the passion for positively changing the way people live through coaching, support, and education.
It is at Thomas Cook Financial services that Greg’s career started. He then ventured in the foreign exchange business. In this new venture, Greg Secker undertook the management of Virtual Trading Desk™, which was at that time a new business. VTD is the first known online trading platform for real-time Forex and was more convenient as it allowed customers to access real-time quotes for large sums of foreign exchange trade.
His career progressed at a relatively faster rate where he gained the position of the vice president of Mellon Financial Corporation. At this pace, he interacted and worked alongside some of the world’s renowned traders. He acquired lots of skills by interacting with these people and others around the world that he met during his travels on official duties and his trading account grew immensely. He decided to leave Mellon and put up a trading floor in his home.
Within three months after setting up the trading floor, a company known as Learn to Trade came into existence. The company has since expanded to have its offices based in various places around the world including London, the Philippines, Australia and South Africa. Up until now, more than 200,000 people have successfully been educated in this program through ongoing workshops and seminars in different locations.
