The Queensland Parliament held its second annual Parliamentary Oration on Friday, 21 November 2014 with a presentation by Mr Stefan Ackerie.

Stefan opened his first hair salon in Longreach in 1964. Now 50 years later the Stefan Corporation has grown as a business to include 43 salons plus a state of the art Education Centre, Boating World and longstanding, iconic Jo-Jo’s restaurant in the Queen Street Mall.

Stefan spoke about how democracy mattered to his life and businesses after moving from Lebanon as a child with his family.
