As the owner of Learn To Trade, George Secker has been teaching forex trading to people for several years. He has often said that he’s not a why guy, instead he’s a why not guy. He has used to philosophy to succeed in business and the world of investing. He’s said that he’s open to trying out new ideas and then figuring out the details as he goes along.
George Secker studied agriculture and food sciences while attending university. He changed his focus after attending a Thomas Cook Financial Services stand during a job fair held at the school. As he also had a background in building and selling computers, he knew how to code. He was brought into the company to work on their Virtual Trading Desk software. In order to program the software he worked with traders and from that learned their craft and how to trade currencies.
After learning how to trade currencies and seeing first hand how lucrative it could be, Secker borrowed £5,000 in order to trade himself. He ended up turning that initial amount into £60,000 over the course of the next year. He eventually earned enough money that he could retire from trading as a full-time career. He was bored at home, though, so he took inspiration from public speakers such as Tony Robbins and decided to do something similar but built around forex trading. He now holds seminars where he teaches people the secrets of currency trading and how to do so profitably.
George Secker is from Norfolk, England. He has hosted financial seminars around the world including in places such as Ghana, Australia, the Phillippines, and New Zealand. He has also been a keynote speaker, including at 2011 National Achievers Congress. He was also awarded the Outstanding Individual Corporate Leadership award that is given out by National CSR in the UK.
The Greg Secker Foundation is a charity organization that Secker created in 2010. He awards money to youth programs that are focused on high-quality education, life skills, and developing leadership abilities. He has also helped in other ways, such as building 100 new home in Lemery, The Phillippines after a natural disaster.
