I was invited to be on a panel at Techonomy in Tucson, so I travelled domestically to speak. The event gave me a free ticket. The event assisted with part of my travel and accommodation. My employer paid some of my travel expenses, and I was working while speaking at the event. It took me 2 days to prepare for my 60 minutes speaking slot, and I had a mostly good time. I'm a woman who has been speaking for 1 year. Also, Techonomy covered conference and hotel, but that was it.
