Greg Secker was born in 1975 in Norfolk, England. He earned his Bachelors degree in Agriculture and Food Science from Nottingham University in 1997. This trading expert began his career as a trading technologist at Thomas Cook Financial Services, where he created an online forex trading desk that enabled traders to obtain quotes in real-time for foreign exchange transactions. At the age of 25, Mr. Secker had become the Vice President at Mellon Financial Corporation in the U.S., where he extensively learned trading strategies from the best traders in the world. In 2003, he retired from the company to become a full-time forex trader in his home, and by three months he had founded his company Learn to Trade.
Learn to Trade was born from the realization that many individuals faced hurdles in forex trading as they started out, because of limited public education on forex trading which made the stakes of joining very high. He demystified the notion that foreign exchange was only reserved for the big institutions by coming up with forex trading strategies and risk mitigation tools that would enable individuals and small organizations to trade in foreign transactions and achieve financial freedom. Secker accrued huge profit margins within six months as a full-time trader that he decided to teach others how to make money in his Learn to Trade Program. Secker’s most satisfying moment was when Knowledge to Action Group started its operations in 2003 to teach people how to excel in forex trading. According to Secker, possibilities of a business thriving are limitless as long as one employs the correct business strategy.
Greg founded Knowledge to Action Group in 2003, a culmination of companies like Learn to Trade, SmartCharts Software, Capital Index, and Greg Secker Foundation with a goal of teaching forex trading strategies and risk management. 200,000 people have been trained in 13 years, in seminars and workshops worldwide. In 2013, he founded the Global Success Summit in South Africa.
