I proposed an idea to speak at Scotlandjs in Edinburgh , so I travelled internationally to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was not paid to speak. The event did not pay for my travel and accommodation. My employer paid all of my travel expenses, and I was working while speaking at the event. It took me 1 day to prepare for this event, and I had a great time. I'm a person who has been speaking for 4 years. This was a not for profit event. Also, I loved the event but I think it makes it problematic to expect people's companies or the person themselves to pay to dpeak
