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, and the immense pressure of being under the spotlight of the media circus.

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