Over the past four years, Daniel Taub has held the position of Ambassador to the Court of St. James for Israel, embarking on a career that has been very fruitful, to say the least. As his impending exit is now on the horizon, Mr. Taub took the time to sit down with Manchester City Fan to discuss his past as the Ambassador, as well as what his life is like as his term comes to an end. Daniel Taub stands out among many of Israel’s ambassadors due to his straight-laced appearance, as well as his formidable wit, causing many comparisons between him, and the former Ambassador of the State of Israel, Shlomo Argov, who was nearly assassinated. Today, the relationship between the United Kingdom and the State of Israel is in an incredible position, and upon reflection, Mr. Taub realized that many of the goals that he set at the beginning of this post, were accomplished. In fact, Mr. Taub and his staff believe that they were able to exceed even their own lofty expectations. While he generally chooses not to look back, believing that there is much more than he could have accomplished if given more time, he is overall, very satisfied with the state in which he leaves his post. One of the most significant accomplishments to occur during Daniel Taub’s tenure happened in an effort to combat antisemitism throughout Europe. He created information centers in Scotland and Wales, while also expanding the centers that were currently in operation in Manchester.
When discussing the lessons that he has learned during his time as the Ambassador to the Court of St. James, he cites his habit of reading, having discussions with friends and those who oppose his stance, as well as remaining multidimensional. Amongst his peers, Daniel Taub is known as a staunch workaholic, which led him to take extra time to speak to those in direct opposition to him. This practice helped to create lasting relationships that he believes will stay the course of his career and life outside of work. Being that he was born in the United Kingdom, but decided to move to Israel while in his twenties, Daniel Taub was able to garner a multidimensional outlook on life that has helped to mold his career, practices, and relationships. This multidimensional approach also helped to shape policies between both nations that he was directly involved in. Learn more: http://www.parashadiplomatit.com/
