I proposed an idea to speak at Falsy Values in Warsaw, Poland, so I travelled internationally to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was paid 500 USD to speak. My travel and accommodation was fully covered by the event. My employer did not pay my travel expenses, and I used my PTO to speak. It took me 3 days to prepare for my 30 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 4 years. This was a not for profit event. Also, They had vegan and vegetarian options and took care of the airport transfer on their expense
