Greg Secker shared his mind in a recent interview. On his life philosophy, he states that he has always learned to say yes to things and then charting a way forward on how to achieve them. Secker says that you figure it out then venture into doing it. Greg encountered the usefulness of this philosophy when he founded the Flying Trader Initiative.
Despite having studied agriculture at the University, he took part in selling computers, and in the process gained knowledge on how to code in the older programmers. The project saw him develop the first 3D interactive model of fluid dynamics of a follicle, getting him attracted to the Thomas Cook Financial Services. That is how Greg ended up working in the financial sector.
Giving back to the community
The Greg Secker Foundation’s mission is to empower young people with life skills before they reach 35. The initiative began with the Youth Leadership Summit, which attracted pro bono services on a topic like health, leaderships, relationships, and entrepreneurship. The program has been rolled out in South Africa and is meant to be extended to Australia and Philippines. Empowering young people prepares them for life and sets a sustainable model for the future generations.
