social impact to your events
Volume48 is an events company helping add social impact and purpose to your activities. If its a meeting, away day, company wide conference or a give back day, we offer a unique, fun and - most importantly - impactful way to help your business achieve its purpose, whilst carrying out business as usual.

Building Purpose into the everyday
Tom Downie has been working in the charity sector for the last ten years, and has been involved in all aspects including fundraising, volunteering and for even longer, corporate giving.
His determination and passion to ensure that client expectations are met and then surpassed is a huge motivator for Volume 48. Having worked in the corporate sector managing business charity relationships, Tom moved into the ‘active challenge events’ market; during this time he trekked to Machu Picchu, climbed the High Atlas mountains in Morocco and was part of the leadership team reaching the summit of Kilimanjaro twice.

Voltaire, Oevres De Voltaire - Volume 48
With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility
In 1832 the great philosopher Voltaire coined the iconic phrase; ‘with great power comes great responsibility’ found in his work ‘Oevres De Voltaire, Volume 48.’
This sentiment is at the heart of what we represent, how we operate and the task we set our clients. We believe that Voltaire’s message is critically significant to the work that we do which is why we named the company after this powerful vision and seminal work.
Voltaire’s words have reverberated through culture and history, being cited by Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and of course Uncle Ben in the comic book blockbuster, Spiderman. Here at Volume 48 we aim to live by this principle, every day, in every event.
