I proposed an idea to speak at agile spain in Madrid. This was a local event. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was paid 40 EUR to speak. The event did not pay for my travel and accommodation. My employer paid all of my travel expenses, and I was working while speaking at the event. It took me 2 weeks to prepare for my 60 minutes speaking slot, and I had a mostly bad time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 1 year. This was a not for profit event.
