Hi there!

We couldnt be more excited that youve decided to give a presentation on OpenDNS. Whatever
the reason youve decided to encourage others to set up OpenDNS, were delighted that youll be
giving them the tools to make their Internet faster, safer, smarter and more reliable.
The materials in this package a slideshow, presentation notes, a factsheet, and our logo should
be a great start for getting the right information out there about OpenDNS. However, if there are
other tools thatll help you Id love to get them out to you. Feel free to give me a shout should you
need information, statistics, stickers to giveaway, or even a t-shirt to wear.
Were here to help!

Slide 1: Introduction
Your opportunity to welcome your audience and introduce the topic of your presentation OpenDNS!
Provide some basic history and information about OpenDNS. If relevant to your audience, you can also mention

becomes nearly impossible. Thats just one of the reasons millions of people have chosen OpenDNS.
Heres a good time to explain how it can be difcult to spot the details in a phishing email that are signs of fraud
and how OpenDNS takes the guesswork out of recognizing the clues.
Heres some context for what being the worlds largest and fastest growing DNS provider means: Were doing 30
billion queries per day and we serve up more DNS than even the worlds largest ISP. If your audience is more
technical, now is a good time to tell them that OpenDNS uses Anycast routing technology. No matter where you
are in the world, your DNS requests are answered by the closest datacenter, making your Internet faster and
more reliable.
This is the meat of the presentation why would you want to use OpenDNS? Quickly run through some of
