He developed an interest in forex trading while working on the Virtual Trading Desk at Thomas Cook Financial Services. Greg secured a loan of £5,000 and turned it into £60,000 in a year.
Greg Secker shares his passion and knowledge through public speaking and has spoken on stage for about 6,000 times.
