Abstract: Have you ever stared out the window wondering how your company will operate in the future? What will your clients want? What will your team need? The Geoprofessional Business Association (GBA) convened its latest Crystal Ball Workshop (CBW) to try to answer these questions. Held in Louisville, KY, in October 2019, this widely acclaimed series brought together 24 distinguished geoprofessionals to brainstorm current and potential future trends most likely to disrupt our industry (Figure 1). These individuals included representatives from GBA member firms and collaborative partners for the event, ACEC’s GeoCoalition, the Geo-Institute, and ADSC, all of whom provided broad and insightful inputs to the outcomes of the CBW.
