****It has been reported that this has been fixed since patch 1.9 (April 8, 2013).

This should still work if you remove the patch and start a new character playing offline.

However, Removing the patch and trying to play offline with Old Saves from any patched version will give you an error about them being created with a newer version and not let you run them.****
---Many Thanks to Jyejitsu and AmazingBong4eva for the updates.

This will get your speech skill to 100 in approximately 30 min.

Credit for this goes to AzureVesper over on x360a.
Video attached.

To start getting free skill-ups you need 25 speech, until then you can pay 39g for each bribe. I was already speech 22 when I started this so it only took a few bribes to get to 25 speech. Afterwards I was able to steal back my bribe money.

1) Head to Riften
* If you haven’t been previously, go outside a major city and take the wagon to Riften for 20g.
2) Intimidate, Persuade or Bribe the Guard to let you in
3) Go to Black-Briar Meadery
4) Talk to Ungrien
* If not there wait outside until after 7 or 8am and go back in.
5) Select Tell me about option

6a) If not skill 25, Select Bribe option
* Keep doing this until skill 25
6b) After skill 25, Select Persuade option

Repeat steps 5 & 6b (choosing Persuade) untill speech skill 100.

If you have a Turbo controller just set A to turbo. The game remembers the last option you chose when re-selecting conversation items so it will auto select 'Tell me about' and 'Persuade' along with speeding up the dialog for you.
