Where can I find someone to help me quickly rank up in Speech and lockpicking in Skyrim?

How much gold you wanna spend?

The leader of the Riften thieves' guild (Vex?) or maybe the Khajit Caravans (which are hard to find IMO) IIRC. Joining the thieves' guild will also allow you to bribe guards, which counts towards your speech skill. If you get a tiny bounty, this can become highly inexpensive speech training. With those skills, joining the guild is probably a no-brainer anyway.

Otherwise, make sure that you activate the Thief Guardian Stone that will make these skill advance 20% faster, pick every lock you see, talk to everyone and sell lots and lots of stuff.

EDIT: As socialjeebus said, trainers will be very expensive if you use them regularly, and more to the point, you can only train five skills per level. You'll still have to do some good old fashioned grind either way.

There are also probably some exploits (beyond the bribery one).

There is a glitch for the speech...

Easy Speech Skill Improvement

Take off for Riften. A guard will be waiting outside the door.
Bribe, persuade, or intimidate the guard to let you inside. When you’re in the town, enter the Black Briar Meadrey. Save your game before continuing.
You’re looking for Ungrien in the tavern. Just wait if he isn’t around, he’ll eventually show up at the bar.
Talk to Ungrien, and choose the “Tell Me About…” speech option. Then choose to Bribe him.
After bribing him, choose the “Tell me About…” speech option again. Now, instead of trying to Bribe him, try to Persuade him.
Choose the Bribe speech option again, whether you succeed or fail trying to Persuade Ungrien doesn’t matter.
Choose the “Tell me About…” option a third time. Then choose the Persuade option for a second time.
Now, just keep choosing the Persuade option. You’ll continue to gain Speech skill points. It’s just that easy.
