Is Pancho Campo's Chrand Management part of NATO?

The logo for Charade Management (aka Chrand Management) or NATO?

Might Pancho Campo's new Charade Management (aka Chrand Management) be a part of NATO? Unlikely as this may seem the logos of the two organisations do appear to share a certain resemblance...!

Not the first time Campo's company's had done it.

His Madwine TV video with the wine glass being filled with wine seemed like a ripoff from Gary Vaynerchuk's Wine Library TV video.

I wonder how much Al Gore really knows about Campo's adventures and if he will come to his senses and bail out from the October event.

Anon. I wouldn't be sure that Al Gore has accepted the invitation to Pancho Campo's 'Green Summit' in Barcelona in October. The article in Harpers where PC alleged that he was getting out of wine because of 'disgusting attacks' said that Gore had been invited. It didn't say he would be attending.
