I was invited to give a workshop at Webstock in Wellington, so I travelled internationally to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was paid 4000 USD to speak. My travel and accommodation was fully covered by the event. My employer did not pay my travel expenses, and I took unpaid time off to speak. It took me 15 days to prepare for my 6 hours speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a woman who has been speaking for 3 years. This was a for profit event. Also, Best conference and best conference organizers ever.
