In the ever-changing business climate, the 100-page business plan is being replaced by one-page documents. In order to keep up with this latest trend, a number of local interests are bringing  a Business Canvas Workshop to Alton on Thursday.

From 5:30-6:30pm December 5, entrepreneurs are invited to the workshop at AltonWorks on Broadway. Alton Main Street’s Sara McGibany tells The Big Z the one-pager can give you a framework to test your assumptions, leading to more efficient decision-making and planning.

Mary Louise Helbig is the special guest. And she will explain how to effectively use a one-sheet. There is no cost to attend, and there are still seats available. You can register online at
