John Egan, co-ordinating manager of the business said: "We are really proud to have been noticed.

"I was a bit star struck to see Sam Warburton and Jeremy Vine.

"The business was started by a Polish man three and a half years ago and we still only have five staff.

"We have customers from different countries now, people are quite interested in us as making board game tables is quite cool.

"We are going to Sheffield Wednesday later this week at the training ground as some of their players are big board game fans, this shows the range of places we do."

Established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry in 2010, The Parliamentary Review’s September release is now a key fixture in the political calendar.

Geeknson features alongside the Prime Minister and a small number of outstanding organisations in a document that looks back on the year in industry and Westminster.

The main aim of the review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector.

The Prime Minister, Theresa May commented that ‘this year’s Parliamentary Review follows a significant year in British politics.'

The Parliamentary Review’s director Daniel Yossman said: "Geeknson and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make this year’s Review possible."

"Sharing knowledge and insight with both peers and government is essential work and I am delighted that this year’s Review will reach every corner of the British economy.

"It’s always a real joy to hear from policymakers who tell me that something they have read in the Review has had an effect on their thinking."
