The Charmian Gooch speeches cover the global corruption uncovered by Global Witness, an organization which she co-founded with two close friends. Gooch has been involved with exposing blood diamond scandals in Uganda, as well as corruption in the timber and logging industries.
Charmian Gooch works with Global Witness to keep tabs on natural resource-based companies to ensure that money isn't being spent inappropriately. She has done work in a lot of poor countries and has seen the unpleasant conditions that people are left to live in. She firmly believes that preventing corruption in oil and gas companies is worth the effort because when money is stolen, it costs these poor countries schools, hospitals and other important developments.
