Featuring a league of extraordinary and exceptional women:

The Hon Jann Stuckey MP

Prior to her election to State Parliament in February 2004, the Minister operated a communications consultancy working mainly for the tourism and small business sectors. Her elevation to a Cabinet position in the Campbell Newman-led LNP Government in 2012 enables Ms Stuckey to draw on her two decades of experience in tourism, events, and small business for the benefit of the Queensland economy.

As the Member for Currumbin, Minister Stuckey has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of women in business and their changing needs and interests.
