Ocean Outdoor CEO Tim Bleakley is joining the line-up of speakers at the World Out of Home Organization's first in-person Africa Forum, to be held in Cape Town, South Africa from March 11-13.

Bleakley's presentation is titled ‘The art of the possible, the world's your Ocean’. He will discuss growth opportunities in the African market and what the example of Europe, where Ocean has a multi-country business, reveals about the best way to take advantage of them.

Bleakley has been CEO of Ocean for 13 years during which time the digital Out of Home specialist has grown from a niche player in the UK to one of the world's highest profile OOH owners, renowned for its major sites including the iconic Piccadilly Lights in London's West End.

WOO President Tom Goddard, who served as chairman of Ocean from inception through its period of major growth, says: "There is no-one better than Tim to reveal the best way to grow an OOH business. Tim has succeeded through a combination of indomitable ambition and a strong focus on teamwork, the keys to any successful business. I'm sure he will make a valuable contribution to what is certain to be a highly informative and rewarding Africa Forum."
