The Red Carpet Academy are excited for our forthcoming event this Friday 30th January entitled ‘Wonder Women: An Evening of Extraordinary Talent’.
Multi-award winning TV Presenter, Producer and our Managing Director, Leah Charles-King alongside 01-Zero One will host an evening of inspirational insight into the world of business, media, fashion and entrepreneurialism delivered by women specifically within the BAME community. These four remarkable women who are successfully working within their fields will share the trials and triumphs of their careers whilst offering inspiration on how to break through the “glass ceiling” most women face.
This week, in the build up to the event we will be featuring each of our esteemed speakers . Today we are excited to introduce, Sherry-Ann Dixon.
Sherry-Ann Dixon is highly respected in the ethnic community in Britain and developed a following of dedicated readers with her health, lifestyle, beauty and relationship articles. She is known to the community as PR, Journalist, Lecturer, Public Speaker, Talk Show Host and the Editor for Pride Magazine in the UK where she has worked for over 10 years. Starting out as a Health & Beauty Editor of the magazine, Sherry became the Editor of Pride in 2004 and left to take up the post as Editor in Chief of SHE Caribbean in St Lucia. She has since returned to London to set up Sherry Dixon Consultancy, a Marketing and PR Consultancy and has also launched herself as an inspirational speaker. Sherry has also written for many publications including The Guardian, Sunday Observer, The Times and had a column titled “Dear Sherry” in The Voice Newspaper.
She has done numerous televisions and radio shows helping to dispel the myths surrounding the health and beauty for women of colour. In December 2006, Sherry was brought in as the official spokesperson on TV nationwide on issues pertaining to the detriment of using skin-bleaching creams. She was heard on the GMTV LK Today Show, London Tonight on ITN, BBC Radio worldwide and BBC News and most national radio programmes in the UK. Her accolades and achievements do not end there. Sherry initially started her career in Public Relations and true to form; from research she found that there was a lack of good positive articles about beauty and skincare for women of colour. She decided to study beauty and ultimately changed careers to become one of the UK’s most talked about beauty experts in relation to make-up and skin care for women of colour.
All the above and more is why we are honoured to have Ms Dixon as one of our guest speakers!
Tomorrow, we will be featuring another of our guest speakers; multi-award winning business woman and entrepreneur under 25, Juliann Ponan.
