There are many things to look forward to this year at Asana. So we talked to a few Asanas from our global offices recently to find out what they’re most excited for in 2020. From customers, to culture, to growth and mentorship, here’s what they had to say: 

San Francisco 

“With Asana emerging as a key player in the work management category, I look forward to seeing how our product will continue to exceed our customer’s expectations and delight them even more with new features.” – Elyse Anderson, Mid Market Account Executive 

“I’m focused on helping people define clear goals for themselves and encouraging them to consistently communicate as they work towards them. It’s amazing to me how powerful mentorship can be.” – Greg Sabo, Engineering Manager

“Getting in front of customers more often as we go upmarket as a sales organization. Our company-wide kick off will be a great time to connect with our global team members and learn about their challenges and successes to inform my own work.” – Alex Hunte, Mid Market Account Executive
