Public Speaking

An exciting and interesting speaker, Vincent Thurkettle has the experience and character to inspire an audience with ‘gold fever’!

Whether as pure entertainment or as an inspirational speaker Vincent is something different. Many have enjoyed the gripping tales and courage of those who have climbed mountains or sailed the world – but have never heard firsthand what it is like to pan for gold in icy arctic melt waters, or the searing heat of the Australian bush, where each leaf and stone seems to hide a deadly spider or scorpion!

Vincent has gold prospected in many countries across the world and has won the British and World Goldpanning Championships. He was President of the World Goldpanning Association for seven years.

He has regularly appeared on television and radio: including Countryfile, Richard & Judy, BBC 2’s Landscape Mysteries, Good Morning, Channel 4’s Big Breakfast, Radio 4’s Midweek and Broadcasting House . In 2012 he filmed an ITV /S4C/Foxtel documentary on lost shipwreck gold, see the trailer video Royal Wreck of Gold.
