ATLANTA, Feb. 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Convey Services today announced that Paul Berberian, CEO of Sphero, will be a featured speaker in the upcoming Cloud Conventions Virtual Expo 2016 for the telecom and cloud industries. Berberian will share how his company, Sphero, brought the BB-8™ Droid robot to life in this “Fireside Chat” moderated by Carolyn Bradfield, CEO of Convey Services. The discussion will be available online March 9th beginning at noon EST.

Paul Berberian, an experienced chief executive and entrepreneur, has founded and run a number of high-tech companies over the past 18 years, including two successful ventures in conferencing and collaboration. His firm, Sphero, was selected by Disney to build the BB-8™ Droid, the newest character in the latest Star Wars film, “The Force Awakens.”

Cloud Conventions will feature eleven live sessions on March 9th and 10th. Individual speakers and panel groups are lead by experts discussing topics designed to help revenue producers better understand industry trends, strategies to increase income, and the latest product innovations.
