I proposed an idea to speak at Chefconf in San Francisco, 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 1 week to prepare for my 45 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 2 years. This was a for profit event. Also, It was a fantastic time and I'd recommend anyone interested in DevOps to attend.
