MEXICO CITY, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Grupo Salinas, a group of dynamic, fast-growing and technologically advanced companies deeply committed to the modernization of the countries in which they operate, announced that last week company executives presented the business philosophy of Ricardo Salinas (www.ricardosalinas.com) -- President and Founder of Grupo Salinas -- at universities on both sides of the US-Mexico border: Chapman University, Los Angeles, and La Universidad del Valle de Mexico, Torreon.
Audiences included a mix of business administration students and professors, as well as people interested in business, economics and society issues.
A video link with Ricardo Salinas was presented that included a discussion of the business opportunities at the bottom of the pyramid. Additionally, financial and operational details of Grupo Salinas were presented along with company strategies, performance and prospects.

The audience in both forums showed great interest in learning about the entrepreneurial vision that has generated solid growth at Grupo Salinas, while improving living standards of millions of families in Mexico and Latin America. The presentation included an active question and answer session.
The presentations are in addition to seven forums in which Grupo Salinas executives have presented Ricardo Salinas' business philosophy to thousands of participants over the past eight months.
