Local Accountant Sharpens her Vision for Figures

Local Bournemouth accountant and barrister, Ivka Gorianni, has a new view of the world and a renewed focus for business, thanks to some advanced eye surgery.

Having been dependent on assorted pairs of specs for distance and near vision for more than 30 years, Ivka decided to look for a permanent solution. She had tried contact lenses but without success.

“I was short-sighted, long sighted and had an astigmatism – I needed different glasses for everything and I was always anxious about not having the right pair with me or of losing them when I was out. It made me feel very vulnerable as I knew that I could not function without my glasses. The amount of close work that I do also gave me regular headaches due to the eye strain,” said the 50-something Southbourne lady.

The Finalists for the NatWest Venus Awards Dorset 2014!

The Finalists for the NatWest Venus Awards Dorset 2014 have been announced!

The finalists for the NatWest Venus Awards in association with Breeze VW Dorset 2014 have been announced! Yesterday afternoon the finalists were announced at the wonderful Norfolk Royal in Bournemouth. With under 6 weeks until the award ceremony, excitement is certainly building!

Tara Howard, founder of the awards which started in Dorset in 2009 explaining her reasons for doing so she said "Being a mother of four and juggling business and family (as so many women have to do) I realised that women are not always on a fair playing field with men when it comes to recognition and awards. That is why I started the Venus Awards. After five years of running the awards, my experience is that the main thing holding most women back is themselves.
