Jeff Winter


Jeff Winter, Football referee speaker




British referee Jeff Winter retired from Premiership football in 2004 and has made a successful career as an after dinner speaker working for the sporting and corporate event circuit.

Before embarking on his new football speaker career Winters was one of the most controversial referee’s in England, born in Manchester Winter’s last match as a Premiership referee was the FA Cup Final between Manchester United and Millwall. As a sports speaker Winter discusses the many situations and incidents he found himself caught in the middle of during his refereeing career.

Winter’s biography, Who’s The B****** in the Black? Also covers much of the same stories he shares as a football speaker, however, unlike some other sports speakers, Winter offers more than locker room gossip; his work as an after dinner speaker is founded upon the management and negotiation of difficult situations. As a referee Winter inevitably found himself caught between opposing sides, his ability to understand potentially complex situations and deal with the fall out of potentially upsetting one team over another marks Winter as a clear and astute thinker.

Winter prides himself on ensuring that all his work as a football speaker is both insightful and interesting, his strong personality and wealth of experience make him an excellent choice for corporate events whilst his personal involvement in charity work – which has extended beyond his professional career to refereeing charity football matches – makes him an excellent sports speaker at fundraising events.

Outside his work as a football speaker Winter contributes to several columns as a sports journalist for both local and national newspapers, he also spent several years working for a local Teeside radio station, TFM Radio.
