The Foundation further partners other youngsters’ forums to enhance leadership, education and survival talents within communities. Secker’s philanthropist work further includes his program to construct a hundred permanent houses in Lemery, the Philippines after the typhoon Yolanda devastation of the area.
Secker traces back the start of Greg Secker Foundation to his displeasure with the monotony of his career as foreign exchange worker in the asset management bank industry. He further cites the opportunity of the untapped trader coaching market and commitment to gain financial autonomy as drivers to his pioneer business idea. The Foundations succeeded in breaking the monotony of foreign exchange work by exposing Secker to multiple, diverse companies and clients. As for his creativity, Secker cites his ability to think outside the box and embarking on a mission to bring those illusionary imageries to reality with the help of family, business colleagues, and friends. He further underscores the importance of consumers driven product development strategy as opposed to forcing standardized mass products down consumers’ throat. In particular, Secker cites the importance of customer relationship management strategies as the key to the success and growth of business in the face of the current liberal consumer preferences. He further recommends for allocation of time for working and thinking time, whereby the thinking time creates space for contemplating on the growth of the company through reorganization and development of new products. Secer, therefore, underscores the importance of work-leisure balance in helping the company make a turnaround from the everyday activities and overall achievements of industries in a particular sector.
Besides his entrepreneurial and philanthropy work, Secker is also a motivational speaker. Nevertheless, he is best known for his entrepreneurial genius as confirmed by his membership to the multimillionaire club when in his twenties.
