I proposed an idea to speak at SeaGL in Seattle, so I travelled domestically to speak. The event asked me to buy a ticket at full price, 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 my 60 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 1 year. This was a not for profit event. Also, I did this as part of my job for a newish (3 years old) community conference
