I was invited to speak at Prairie Dev Con in Winnipeg, so I travelled domestically 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 all of my travel expenses, and I was working while speaking at the event. It took me 5 days to prepare for my 75 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a man who has been speaking for 3 years. This was a for profit event. Also, D'Arcy Lussier the conference founder did a great job getting some fantastic speakers. He had a speakers dinner and ensured all accomodations and travelling needs were met. Even had forms ready for speakers outside of the country
