Mentor Award 2022
Jessica Chapman is the 2022 award recipient for mentorship.
Owner, eThree Consulting
Jess Chapman, the owner of ethree, located in St. John’s, received the Mentor Award, sponsored by HR Project Partners. The Mentor Award recognizes individuals who have given their time and resources to mentoring other women in business.
Originally from Great Britain and with a background in business, human resources, and neuroscience, Jessica leads ethree in supporting clients throughout Canada and the United States to empower the members of their workforce to reach their full potential. In 2019, Jessica expanded her portfolio, opening ethree Online, developing and delivering custom online and virtual training. In response to the global pandemic, demand for e-learning products and services has substantially increased as firms seek solutions to their remote training needs. In 2021, Jessica participated in NLOWE’s export program, Gateway to Trade, which helped her identify business growth opportunities in North America and the United States. Later that same year, Jessica signed on with an international mining company to provide e-learning solutions for their North Atlantic division.
Chapman says. “Mentoring and organizations like NLOWE help people find a community that authentically allows them to connect to others with similar interests and that can open networks and opportunities.”
“I’m always learning from others I’ve met through NLOWE and the community of women entrepreneurs. Through this community, I’ve developed friendships that I turn to when I need to have a good laugh or some good advice. Sometimes we have a cry and a glass of wine.”
Chapman is thrilled to be recognized with the Mentor Award. She says being an entrepreneur has its challenges, and if she can help others deal with those challenges and make their lives a little easier, that makes her feel good. “Mentorship gives women the tools, skills, confidence, and space to achieve their career goals. As a mentor, I hope to use my experiences, successes, and failures to help other women reach for the top.”
