Daniel Taub is considered by many of his peers, contemporaries, and opposer’s alike as one of the most successful Israeli Ambassadors to the Court of St. James, in recent history. It’s Mr. Taub’s many successes and connections made during this time, that have propelled him among the elite, often times drawing comparisons between him, and former Ambassador, Shlomo Argov. Throughout his term, Mr. Taub could be accurately characterized as a workaholic, who’s straight-laced appearance and witty demeanor, seared him into the hearts of many of his counterparts. As his time as the Ambassador of the State of Israel to the United Kingdom approaches its endpoint, he chose to sit down with Manchester City Fan to discuss his career, as well as intimate parts of his life. Mr. Taub is well-known for his dislike of formal titles, preferring to be called by his name, and also for a habit that he has developed throughout his career: to never look back.
Despite the fact that he has made looking to the future a part of his everyday process, Mr. Taub did choose to speak on his run as the Ambassador to the Court of St. James. Mr. Taub believes that the goals that he and his team set in the initial phases of his term where lofty ones indeed, but through their hard work and dedication, they were achieved. In addition to his initial goals, he also believes that they were able to take it farther than what was believed to be possible. Setting up information centers seems to be one of the goals that stand out among his accomplishments. In Europe, there has long been a problem with antisemitism; one that had to be addressed with awareness. During his term, Daniel Taub was able to set up new information centers in Scotland and Wales and was also able to expand existing centers throughout Manchester.

As he prepares to leave, spending more time with family and enjoying traditional British theater, such as Les Miserables, Daniel Taub reflected on a few attributes that helped significantly with his personal life as well as career. Chief among them was the ability to be multidimensional. His ability to master this character trait was in part due to his dual citizenship. As a man in his early twenties, he relocated to Israel from the United Kingdom; a choice that was instrumental in his success as the Ambassador to the Court of St. James for Israel.
