Dixie Dansercoer


Nothing stirs the imagination like polar exploration.

Dixie Dansercoer (born in Nieuwpoort, Belgium, in 1962) is a Belgian polar explorer with over twenty years of experience in polar travel.

Dixie has spent almost three decades accumulating valuable wisdom during his various ground- breaking expeditions in both the Arctic and Antarctica. His world record traverses of the Antarctic Continent (South Through the Pole 1997-98) and the Arctic Ocean (Arctic Arc 2007), as well as his circumnavigations of both Antarctica (Antarctic ICE in 2012) and Greenland (Greenland ICE 2014), have rightfully placed him in the history books.

But it is Dixie’s distinctive talent of sharing his unique expedition anecdotes with a wide variety of audiences that leaves him with the most pride and satisfaction. Via his Polar Circles corporate keynotes and public speaking engagements, Dixie effortlessly makes the link toward grand goal achievement of any sort. His Polar Experience guiding services allow him to literally share the polar regions with adventurous souls of all levels.

As an author, Dixie Dansercoer has written sixteen books about polar expeditions and the parallels with corporate life. His most recent, Polar Exploration – A practical handbook for North and South Pole Expeditions, was published by Cicerone Publishers (UK) in 2012 and Surpassing Sastrugi, together with Julie Brown, was published by Snoeck in 2014. His latest publication, Empowering Outperformance, has been published by Die Keure in the fall of 2017.

Dixie is married to Julie Brown and the father of Jasper, Evelien, Thijs and Robin.

Dixie & Julie and M&A’s managing partner Christoph worked together 20 years ago while working for Belgium’s International airline Sabena. They remember and share great travel moments and the solid friendships among the old “ Sabeniens”  

Polar Circles and Mailleux & Associates decided to start their collaboration as from January 01 2020.

At M&A Dixie and Julie will focus on their key strengths : Energizing Key-Note speeches on topics such as Empowering Outperformance, Sustainable Human Energy and Team Performance.
