Where will we find professional talent be in 3-5 years?

I have just been asked by a client to consider their future strategies aroung direct resourcing. I would be very interested to hear what your opinions are on where the professional talent will be found in 3-5 years time and what you think we are going to have to start doing now, to tap into those areas.
