1DDBA 8006:Contemporary Challenges in BusinessProfessional Development PlanTasha CorbinInstructor: Jorge GaytanWalden University
Professional Development PlanMy professional development plan has not changed much from the time that I began my doctoral studies a short time ago. I have found that instead of it changing, it has evolved. As a doctoral level learner my priorities constantly shift. No two priorities are exactly the same and if they are, they soon change.

In today’s society, communicating with others through email, social media and other electronic means is vital! We live in a technology driven world, so appealing to customers and clients in that aspect is crucial to get and hold their interest. I plan to hold live and “after the fact” recorded webinars, IG and FB contest for those following my marketing pages. I
