I proposed an idea to speak at Troopers in Heidelberg (Germany), so I travelled domestically to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was paid 750 EUR to speak. My travel and accommodation was fully covered by the event. I took unpaid time off to speak. It took me 2 weeks to prepare for my 60 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 6 years.
