2016 Keynote Speaker: Sherry Cadorette

We are proud to announce our keynote speaker for this year’s Bosom Buddies Gala, Sherry Cadorette.

Her specific connection to Earlier.org comes from her Presidency of the Stoney Creek Ladies Golf Association (Whitsett, NC).  Over the past 3 years, the SCLGA has raised over $100,000 for earlier.org through their annual Pink Ribbon Rally Charity Golf Tournament.

Sherry is a retired business and human resource strategist whose business success and leadership expertise was centered on a disciplined and goal-oriented approach and an ability to inspire and motivate others.

In recent years she was called on to coach leaders, assist with business and human resource strategy development, build results focused teams, and design and facilitate leadership development programs for both profit and not for profit organizations.

Sherry’s versatility and experience allowed her to work effectively at all levels of the organization, effectively facilitating and leading teams. Her unique coaching style was both direct and compassionate and ensured a balanced, results oriented approach when working with leaders.

Sherry was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. After successful treatment left her cancer free she harnessed her previous leadership skills and experiences to become an outspoken advocate for educating others on the importance of early detection of breast cancer.
