This Guyanese award winning Journalist, Lecturer and Keynote speaker is passionate about empowering people to be confident, assertive and to be the best they can be.  Today she represents women in her community and without skipping a beat she has moved from Magazine Editor in Chief to being an internationally sought after Transformational Coach and Public Speaker.

Sherry Dixon is highly respected in the ethnic community in Britain and developed a following of dedicated followers from her editorial and radio show interviews with celebrities such as Dr. Maya Angelou, Nelson Mandela, Iyanla Vanzant, Barry White, Luther Vandross, Pam Grier, Jasmine Guy, Nia Long, Cedella Marley, Whitney Houston, Alice Walker, Terry McMillan, John Holt and many more.



Coming from a background of Beauty and PR, as renowned journalist Sherry edited two magazines – Pride Magazine, SHE Caribbean and also became Editor at Large for Essence Magazine for a short while.  She has written for many publications including The Guardian, Sunday Observer, The Times, Guyana Chronicle & Stabroek News, Upscale Magazine and The Voice. She has done numerous television and radio shows including Lorraine Kelly (LK Today) and BBC Worldwide helping to dispel the myths surrounding health and beauty for women of colour. 


Sherry had two previous radio shows on Choice FM where she co-hosted Ladies Room and soon after The Sherry Dixon Shown on Choice FM was born. Shortly after returning from Saint Lucia where she was headhunted to be Editor in Chief for SHE Caribbean Magazine to bring in a British audience, Sherry returned to the UK and was again headhunted to run her own radio show for Bang FM. Her show was very successful where she discussed current topics but in particular those of relevance to the community at large. As well as interviewing British business entrepreneurs, Sherry also included her celebrity contacts bringing high profile names to her audience. But most of all she tackled hard issues which were often not discussed within the community such as rape, sexism, incest and domestic violence.


With her wide span of knowledge of empowerment issues, Sherry Dixon has now become a sought after Transformational speaker and mentor, sharing her life skills and vast knowledge to empower individuals in the UK and worldwide.  But most importantly it’s her thirst for mentoring within her community that has been recognised and applauded. In December 2014 Sherry was commended by The Mayor of London acknowledging her inspiring work with women in her community by presenting her with a Certificate of Appreciation at the London Peace Awards.

A much sought after international Transformational Speaker, Sherry Ann Dixon has on a number of occasions delivered Keynote address at the House of Lords and House of Parliament in London including one on Who’s Holding You Back, Why Mentoring Women is important to Women in our community, The Emerging Generation in South Wales and toured with the series Are you Enough? throughout England, Scotland and Wales.  The lists of her speaking events are much too long to mention here as it would transpire over many pages. In March 2016 Sherry spoke at the UN in New York with the Justina Mutale Foundation UN-CSW60 as part of the UK Civil Society delegation "Activating Women's Leadership as a Key Driver to Achieving Sustainable Development".  In April 2016 Sherry was appointed as The Country Committee Chairperson for Motivation in the UK at ALL Ladies League (ALL) and in November 2019 Sherry was introduced as one of the Directors of the newly formed Women’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry Guyana.
