I was invited to speak at Full Frontal in Brighton, so I travelled internationally to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was paid 500 GBP to speak. My travel and accommodation was fully covered by the event. My employer did not pay my travel expenses, and I was unemployed when I spoke at the event. My speaking slot was 40 minutes for this event, and I had a mostly good time. I'm a woman who has been speaking for 2 years. This was a not for profit event.
