Ohimai Godwin Amaize, Nigerian entrepreneur and advisor, helps companies embrace and institutionalise creative and innovative ways of developing their business models.

Ohimai says “Every generation has its own peculiar challenges and must find a way within the opportunity available to it to deal with those challenges. Nigerian youths are not the problem to be solved but the resources to be harnessed.”

Ohimai has been Creative Adviser at Tesslo Concepts Ltd, since 2014, and is a voluntary adviser to numerous youth-led non-profit initiatives, including work in the EFCC’s Popular Culture Programme under the Commission’s former Fix Nigeria Initiative department and later under the Commission’s Strategy and Re-orientation Unit (SARU).

In addition, Ohimai founded both Breaking Times Communications Ltd, a Media and Communications company in 2014, and Olivier Pope Ltd a Branding, Media, PR, Strategic Communications & Crisis Management company in 2015 (after one year).

Ohimai was nominated in the Excellence in Service (Public Service) category of The Future Awards for 2012.

Later in 2013, he was honoured by the Federal Government of Nigeria as one of the Best 100 Young Nigerians in one of the events to mark Nigeria’s 100th anniversary as a nation.

In 2016, Ohimai made it into the list of the world’s top 500 most influential CEOs in social media alongside media mogul Virgin boss, Richard Branson, Apple CEO, Tim Cook and Oprah Winfrey.
