Mr. Sainani has done his Masters from IIM Bangalore, is a Certified CEO Coach and holds a Diploma in Creative Writing in English and a Masters’ degree in Arts.

Anil deeply believes that every human being has wisdom within them. If that wisdom is enlightened/ triggered , the internal barriers of Ego as well as any external barriers can be overcome. He believes that Individual Happiness, Family Togetherness and Business Growth are deeply intertwined. If one grows at the expense of other, it would impact all three negatively. Corollary to this theory is also that if one grows the others will automatically experience a positive impact. Anil sees his role as a Coach who guides families in working out a synergy between these three spheres in a business family.
