He also explains how healthcare, education, job creation, government, and arts and culture are all fundamentally intertwined.


Deke Copenhaver currently serves as President of Copenhaver Consulting LLC. Deke served as Mayor of Augusta, Georgia from 2005 through 2014, which instilled in him a firm belief that cities can be used as living classrooms to create transformational change at the grassroots level.
