This was a key message from Advance's first Lounge Chair Series at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood last week, where business reporter Louise Pennell chaired a panel of three Australian-born leaders of industry working in America: Taco Bell Corporation President and Chief Concept Officer Greg Creed; Andrew Cohen, Head of J.P. Morgan's Private Bank in Los Angeles; and Shane Brennan, Executive Producer of NCIS (the number one scripted drama on U.S. television) and NCIS Los Angeles, (the number one new show on television this season).

"Intellectual capital is key, but the emotional quotient - not the IQ the EQ - is something incredibly imperative in a recession," said Cohen
: "I use the example of, right now, an organization can either spend time putting picks and stakes and building fences to protect what they've got, or while everybody else is focused internally, take the opportunity to go out and grow your business."
