An Incredible and Humble Ambassador, Daniel Taub

Daniel Taub was promoted to become the Ambassador of the State of Israel, and this gave him the chance to meet with the Queen of England. Daniel’s dress code made a full statement about his practices and beliefs.

Although Taub was born in Britain, he is an Orthodox Jew. He wore a head gear called the Kippah, striped trousers and the black morning tail coat. Daniel also wore black shoes that were mirror-shined and all that was the great attire for a Jew.

The Ambassador was born in 1962 and raised in Great Britain but left for Israel in 1989. He had to become a full citizen of Israel because Taub even joined the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). In IDF, he served as a combat medic.

The Ambassador has also held different diplomatic and legal posts as well as other positions such as the Israeli Foreign Ministry which was in 1991.The Queen too, knew that Taub had to trade his British citizenship and she had to ask how it felt having fate bring him back.

Back to represent a country he had already left a few decades earlier. Daniel Taub was, in fact, privileged to be given the position as an Ambassador because it would give him the opportunity to bring Israel and Britain together.

He loved both countries and was happy for the post as it would expose his children to both cultures and traditions.

Daniel held the position for four years that is from 2011 to 2015. The work he had done was felt by the Jewish people living in Britain; his mission to bring the two countries was certainly felt by many. Daniel Taub was branded as the best Ambassador than the ones before him, and it was sad to see his departure.

Daniel Taub fought effortlessly for the rights of Israelis in Britain. However, Taub explained that he was not assigned per say to the Anglo-Jewry but rather to the Court of St James’s.

He states that he is not the Jewish community Ambassador but the Jews as a whole are significant. The Jewish community, in turn, recognizes Taub as part of them and this earned a place for him and his wife in the community.

Daniel also says that he would miss all the work and events. In the office endless conversations took place, and Daniel found the British people good at listening.

Being an Orthodox Jew in London, Britain was not difficult because it opened new opportunities for him. Everyone Daniel Taub associated with including other Ambassadors respected him and his belief; this was a perfect time for Ambassador Taub.

Dick DeVos: A track record effective leadership

When it comes to entrepreneurship, Dick Devos has his track record well laid out which is a culture that emanates from his family. He worked in various executive positions at the beginning of his career while at Amway International since joining the company in 1974. While at the company, he held positions in different divisions such as sales, research and development. He later became the company’s vice president in 1984 where he was overseeing operations of the firm in 18 countries. I find it impressing how the company managed to venture into new markets and at the same time triple foreign sales as compared to domestic sales under the DeVos’ leadership. In fact, sources indicate that sales outside U.S added to 5% and six years after getting into the position, the sales had grown to 50% in annual sales, a true reflection of the firm leadership set by DeVos.

 

 

When the DeVos’ family acquired NBA’s Orlando Magic in 1991, he left Amway International to become Orlando’s President and CEO, a position he held up to the year 1993. DeVos then returned to Amway International where he became its President with a responsibility for every aspect of the firm’s undertaking in 50 countries located on six different continents. It’s worth noting that, during his time as the President, sales were reported to be $4.5 billion (quite a huge number) mainly through part-time sales as well as complementary e-commerce channel. .From this, we can describe DeVos as a result oriented individual who has a detailed management style. He held the position of Presidency and board member for nine good years until when he left the company in 2002.

 

 

The Northwood University graduate holds a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and has skills in leadership, strategic planning and public speaking among other skills. DeVos is currently the president of The Windquest Group, a position he has held for the last 15 years. The Windquest Group is a private investment that has holdings in various sectors such as technology and manufacturing. Among other key positions that he has held include being part of the Board of Directors of Michigan Chamber of Commerce since 2010 and a Vice-Chairman of Willow Creek Association since 2007. Besides his business roles, he leads various community initiatives such as the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation which has so far donated millions to support a wide range of activities.
