The Mane in Spain Goes Mainly Down the Drain! Jodi Chamberlain Next to Lose Hair for The Water School?

Over the past 12 months PPX International Chairman Gregg McNair has used his considerable powers of persuasion to convince a series of domain industry figures to let him shave their heads bald in exchange for donations to a very worthy charity - The Water School. Last spring at the 2012 Domaining Spain conference in Valencia, Spain, I was the last in the current line of sheep sheared by the mad barber from Melbourne, Australia

Now it looks like the conference's co-promoter, Jodi Chamberlain, made a mistake in sitting next to me after the deed was done because Gregg has zeroed in on her as his next victim! 

Domaining Spain co-promoter Jodi Chamberlain (right) with Ron and Diana Jackson after Ron had his head shaved by Gregg McNair in Valencia, Spain last spring to raise over $50,000 for The Water School. If donors step up again, Jodi has agreed to have her head shaved at the April 2013 show in Valencia.

Jodi revealed today that she would be willing to sacrifice her lovely brown locks when Domaining Spain returns for an April 25-27, 2013 run at the Sorolla Palace Hotel in Valencia, if donors step up again and generate $50,000 in pledges to The Water School. You can help make it happen by visiting www.watershave.org to pledge your support. Jodi told me she is also planning on going to Africa this summer to see first hand how The Water School is saving so many lives in developing countries with the organization's inexpensive and effective disease-preventing clean water solution. 

2013 Moderator Braden Pollock
Founder, Legal Brand Marketing, LLC

Jodi, who works with conference founder Dietmar Stefitz to put on a consistently great show in  Valencia, had some additional Domaining Spain news today. She said that lead gen whiz Braden Pollock (who was profiled in our November 2011 Cover Story) has agreed to serve as the conference's 2013 moderator

Those who know Braden, or saw him speak in Valencia last year (or at any of the other conferences where he has been on stage), know that he will be a superb moderator. He has both the broad industry knowledge and consistently  entertaining sense of humor it takes to keep an audience fully engaged.

Braden will guide attendees through a strong wide ranging agenda that has just been posted on the show's website. 

In addition to a great opportunity to network with top domain investors from around the world, many leading companies will have representatives on hand at Domaining Spain to personally answer questions about their services. Already signed up to sponsor the event are Escrow.com, UniRegistry, Karen Bernstein, The Dot Green Community, Euro DNS, Law.es, iStaff.ph and Parking Crew.

With a registration fee of  600 and a nightly room rate of just 70 at the superb 

Sorolla Palace Hotel in beautiful Valencia, Domaining Spain is one of the best values on the global domain conference circuit.
