I get that we should give talks, but which conferences can we realistically give talks at? How do you know when you're good enough?

Good question!

This year I started by giving talks at local user group meetups (Montreal Python), and then my friend encouraged me to submit a talk to PyCon Canada, and the same talk got accepted to PyCon 2014.

I'd recommend joining Toastmasters (http://www.toastmasters.org) They do a really good job at building your public speaking skills.
