I was invited to speak at Full Frontal in Brighton, so I travelled internationally to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was paid 500 GBP 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 20 days to prepare for my 40 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a woman who has been speaking for 1.5 years. This was a not for profit event.
