In the first of a three-part series, Richard Meadows attends a seminar promising a world of riches – but only to those who are willing to open their wallets. Greg Secker says he has a $50 million “slush fund”. He gave his working-class dad a shiny new Aston Martin for his birthday; “straight out of Casino Royale”. He hasn't truly worked in the past 15 years, much less ironed a shirt or washed the dishes. He's often pictured riding in a helicopter, or standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Virgin founder Sir Richard Branson. Sound like the good life? You, too, can have it all: “If I want you to become a millionaire, it's very easy,” Secker says, with absolute conviction. “It's a cakewalk.” Rewind two hours. I'm standing in a hotel lobby in Auckland, milling around a crowd of about 50 other hopefuls. They come from all ages and backgrounds, wearing everything from three-piece suits to jandals and boardshorts. All are here to listen to Secker, who's on a whirlwind tour of Australia and New Zealand to drum up business for his UK-based company, Knowledge to Action, which claims to be one of the largest international companies providing education on foreign exchange trading. For the first time, he's bringing the secret behind his forex success to New Zealand. With staff running most of the seminars, the man himself doesn't speak much these days. The warm-up guy tells us we're in for a real treat seeing Secker in the flesh – and he's right. The charismatic Englishman weaves a spell so enchanting that by the time two hours is over, I'm half-convinced that I'm going to throw in the whole journalism gig and make my fortune on the forex markets too. The seminar starts with a run-through of the Secker back-story. After learning how to trade from a colleague at a investment bank, he threw in his day job and started full-time currency trading. “Within nine months I'd turned £5000 into £55,000,” he tells the audience. Soon he had 19 people camped out in his lounge at home, drinking cups of coffee and watching him trade. The rest is history. Within the space of three years, Secker went from a self-described “little rat” earning £15,000 a year, to a claimed multi-millionaire. For the spellbound audience, it's an intoxicating introduction to the world of forex.
