Greg Secker is a celebrated entrepreneur, author, international speaker and philanthropist, passionate about making a difference in other people’s lives. During a recent interview with CEOCFO, Greg described himself as an individual who always wants to try things out. His philosophy entails taking a go ahead then figuring out the details along the way.
As explained by Greg, while at the University of Nottingham, he used to build and sell computers even though his field of study was agriculture and food science. Building computers enabled him to learn how to code and ended up building a 3D interactive model. He later landed a job where he was involved in building an online currency trading platform: Virtual Trading Desk. While working on Virtual Trading Desk, Greg developed interest in foreign exchange trading where he learned about its operations.
Secker’s role as a public speaker enables him to share his knowledge and passion every time he gets on stage. As recalled by Greg, he has spoken about 6,000 times on stage since 2003. He believes that speaking internationally enables him share life-changing tools to everyone. He explained that the Greg Secker Foundation’s aim is to empower young people with life skills that will enable them shape their future while still young. The foundation has held summits to talk to the youth about relationships, wealth, health, entrepreneurship and leadership. It has conducted its operations in South Africa and currently working to help a community in Philippines.
Having been named to the board of Ambassadors for City Philanthropy, Greg trusts this as an opportunity to enable him shape, direct and inform the City of ongoing causes around UK. He will also get more business owners and entrepreneurs to participate in philanthropy.
