The biggest milestone of my career to date… I’ve captured the attention of Harvard University!! I’m now a case study at Havard University Business School, the most prestigious business school in the world!! ???????????????????????????????? They have been doing a case study on my food career, being an entrepreneur, a woman and a pioneer in the culinary world locally and globally against all odds. They approached me early last year and have been working on the case study since then doing it for almost two years and was lectured today for the first time at Harvard to their MBA students and I was their special guest together with my team, business associates and family. It was so surreal hearing top minds analysing my brand and business from their own eyes…. and still feels like a dream to be part of academic literature at Harvard????????????????????‍♀️ ???????? This picture is a captured moment responding to some of the questions on the case study… I was meant to be there in person in the US for the lecture, but due to Covid obviously couldn’t travel, so it was a virtual lecture… However they have planned a trip planned for the future… Waze wandincumisa uThixo in the midst of a peculiar time! Imisebenzi yezandla Zakhe! Despise not the small beginnings, you are being prepared for something greater! Do your best and God will do the rest! ????????❤️???????????????????????? . . . #humblingmoments #Believe #AnotherGlobalRecognition #MdantsaneToHarvard #Academia #DoYourBestAndGodWillDoTheRest #careerinfoods #TheSibaCo #FoodSolutions #FoodInnovation

Siba says the institution approached her earlier this year and that they have been doing a case study on her food for about two years. Her case study was lectured for the first time this week to their MBA students.

“I was their special guest together with my team, business associates and family. It was so surreal hearing top minds analysing my brand and business from their own eyes and still feels like a dream to be part of academic literature at Harvard.”

Due to Covid-19, the chef was unable to lecture physically in the United States so it was done virtually.
