      Here is the flow in my mind -
      Quick context setting on why DR is important even for small/medium business (5mins)
      Classic challenges & changing trends with Cloud (5mins)
      Take scenarios to build DR solutions like - On-prem to On-prem using Cloud services just for orchestration, make cloud as a DR site while primary site remains on-prem & just cloud based scenarios.(10 mins)
      Demo based discussion around Azure Site Recovery service to showcase how easy it is to build from scratch. ( 20 mins)
      Take Questions (5mins)
