I proposed an idea to speak at JSConfAU in Melbourne, Australia, so I travelled domestically 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 3 weeks to prepare for my 30 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 2 years. This was a not for profit event. Also, The event had offered to pay travel and accommodation, but my employer covered it instead
