Ojoma-Ochai

Ojoma Ochai is currently the assistant country director, British council in Nigeria. She is responsible for the British Council’s Art and Creative Industries programme in Nigeria, where she develops various policy advocacy, capacity development programmes and platforms to showcase creative and cultural initiatives in Nigeria.

While growing up, her parents wanted her to go into Arts related courses but she chose medicine, unfortunately she couldn’t pursue that career path so she switched to chemistry. Ojoma had no idea about how she was going to live her adult years but she made best use of every opportunity that presented itself, one of which was the job offer at the British council in 2006.

In 2006, she took up the role of an administrative assistant, British Council Nigeria, where she assisted in implementing the Arts and Creativity programme for British Council Nigeria. After three months of dedication and hard work, she was briefly promoted to Project Manager, where she developed Creative Entrepreneurs Programme, a training programme which helps creative people develop business skills across Africa. And this creative programme has trained over 1000 creatives in Nigeria since inception. In 2009, she became the Director Diversity, Performance and Evaluation Nigeria, and then Assistant Director Nigeria, for British Council Arts and Creative Industry, in 2010.

Ochai keeps initiating and developing partnerships for the British Council’s Creative Economy to work with various public and private organizations home and abroad. She was nominated for Young Person of the Year in Nigeria for The Future Award in 2011. She believes every woman should strive to be the best person for any job, rather than the best woman for a job.
