Daniel Taub is known as the Director of Strategy and Planning for the Yad Hanadiv Foundation, as a regular contributor to renowned publications such as The Guardian and The Post, and as the former Ambassador of the State of Israel to the Court of St. James. During Mr. Taub’s tenure as the Ambassador, he placed heavy emphasis on developing trade between the two nations, and as he prepares to leave his post, many of his contemporaries believe he will be missed. Mr. Taub’s aura is one that is both straight-laced and witty, and during his time, he developed many comparisons with former Ambassador, Shlomo Argov. As he recently sat down with Manchester City Fan for a brief Q&A session, Mr. Taub decided to discuss his history as the Ambassador to the Court of St. James, as well as his potential future endeavors.
In discussing his tenure, Daniel Taub fixated on a few points that were key factors to his continued success, including never looking back, staying committed to reading, as well as maintaining a multidimensional approach to his career and the relationships that encompass it. While Mr. Taub generally chooses not to look back, upon reflecting on his career, he feels that the goals that he and his team set forth to accomplish were completed in excellent fashion. In response to his accomplishment, Mr. Taub was actually surprised with the amount of progress that he and his staff were able to make, but upon leaving, does think about things that he could have improved upon. Among his achievements, Mr. Taub places heavy emphasis on the fact that they were able to create information centers in Scotland, Wales, and Manchester, which directly helps to address the growing problem with antisemitism throughout Europe.
Recently, when he was asked to lecture regarding the history of Israel throughout English literature, Mr. Taub resorted to consulting the classic literature of his youth as a point of reference. Along with his commitment to maintaining a reading schedule, he also referenced his dual citizenship, which was lost when he became Ambassador to the Court of St. James, as a real factor in his multidimensional approach to his career. Being born in the United Kingdom, and relocating to Israel as a young adult, Mr. Taub was allowed to see things from the perspective of both nations, uniquely equipping him for the position of Ambassador to the United Kingdom.
