To put it bluntly, no. If the encryption software is solid and the password is
xmc'jg.6EE/l\Z>tX;8mXb0#0k+RgW!1'N)q)}OE1FO(3!JbyUq^\HUR1&#o, then there is absolutely no chance to crack the password. Even if you waited billions of years, there isn't enough energy in the universe to do so.
So why did the guy say that eventually it will be cracked anyways? What does he know that we don't?
The problem is, most people don't set a secure, random password. You see, a lot of people tend to think that they don't need security - until they need security. They pick easy-to-remember passwords like
Julia1994, etc. because they think nobody will ever try to crack their password anyways. So if your password is easily guessable or follows "a totally secure scheme nobody would ever guess", then your chance of being cracked will increase.
Furthermore, it also depends on who stole your laptop. A lot of people who steal a laptop simply want to sell it for some cash. They don't care what's on your laptop, and most likely, even if it was without any encryption, they wouldn't dedicate the time to finding out ways to monetize your company secrets. To them, stealing a laptop is a quick way to make cash. The people who buy a stolen laptop also couldn't care less what the previous owner had on there. It's just an extremely cheap laptop to them.
On the other hand, if your laptop was stolen by a dedicated attacker who knows who you work for, what you work on and how to make use of that knowledge, well, let's hope your password isn't
