Know your current events.news image by Angelika Bentin from Fotolia.com
Begin to write speeches for current events as a test run. Pick a cause you are passionate about--whether at the local, state or national level--and a current event that a leader would need a speech for. Give yourself a hard deadline and a word count to complete. Make sure the deadline is within 24 to 48 hours to keep the pressure on and get your skills primed.
