I proposed an idea to speak at KnowledgeConf in Moscow, Russia, so I travelled internationally to speak. The event gave me a free ticket, and I was not paid to speak. My travel and accommodation was fully covered by the event. My employer paid some of my travel expenses, and I was working while speaking at the event. It took me 5 days to prepare for my 45 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a woman who has been speaking for 1 year. This was a for profit event.
