Howard's ability to tell his story in a very grounded, simple and authentic way enables him to touch everyone in his audience.

In Detail

Howard refereed almost 300 matches in the English Premier League. He became a household name when he officiated as a referee both the UEFA Champions League Final and FIFA World Cup Final in 2010. His c career highlights include overseeing many high-profile finals such as the English FA Cup Final in 2009 and English League Cup Final in 2007. He retired from active refereeing in 2014 to take up the position of Technical Director of PGMOL which oversees refereeing matters in the professional game in England and also became a FIFA referee instructor.


Howard is a fascinating motivational speaker as in choosing to be a referee, he is no stranger to controversy and in his presentation, he provides a thought-provoking insight into a world where making an impact is part of the game. He talks about how referees face intense scrutiny at all times and the pressures of having only seconds to weigh up facts and make the right decision.
