First, you rarely find a course for speech writing or maybe, you might not find any. How do you learn? You listen. When you listen, your mind can acknowledge how speeches are supposed to sound. The more you listen, the better.

The first time you hear a speech may judge if you still want to continue with this profession, after all, everyone can be a speechwriter, it’s just a matter of keeping up with the changes and most important, originality. When you know you’re fit for the job, then keep the learning process going, be open for more ideas, that way you won’t be stuck with a single idea and you can keep on improving.

When you have gathered the ideas you need, you will need your pen, or just type it out. Write as if you’re having a conversation with the paper or someone else; make it sound interesting and unique. Pour all your passion and sincerity into your speech.
