Your next freelance
collaboration in

Project 12 is Sven Cautaerts, and Sven Cautaerts is a multipotentialist (yes, you can look it up…). A socially-engaged freelancer. A closet full of different passions that make him your needed fixer. Someone who is grounded in business development, event management, crew coordination and hospitality. And he loves to tap into his entire arsenal of both professional and personal capabilities for any job. With a high dose of enthousiasm and unparalleled drive

Sven Cautaerts is all about getting things done. You can ask this Senior Project Manager to assist on commercial fairs, incentives, teambuildings, festivals or corporate events… he can do it all. Or else he knows the right people to partner up with. A strong network is what makes for a great freelancer.

My strong suits

Event management

Above all I’m an eventplanner. But one your can rely on from pitch to debrief. A senior project manager who first sells the project, and then manages it with you from A to Z.

Business Development

Some people say I’m a born seller. But I call it “seeing opportunities”. I try to really understand the product or company, to translate the USP or unfair advantage into something sellable. Afterwards it’s all in the negotiation!

Crew Coordination

I’ve been working with volunteers, associations, students, freelancers and flexi’s since 2012. If you have crew to find & manage during a festival, I can be of assistance!

F&B or Hospitality

Being the founder of the Belgian Bartender School and having worked for several caterers does give you some experience in the field of F&B management or hospitality. 

First Aid

It’s a part of me, I’m an Ambulance EMT. And proud of it! We have all the partners you need to set-up any event small or big with the required first aid posts. You just need someone for the night? Let me know.

Consultancy & Lecturing

I’m all about passing my knowledge, experience and network to others. You see a match between your company or brand and my Linkedin page? Then let’s talk!

I’m also always up for guest lecturing in event management, startup management & entrepreneurship.



Working with Sven is having an endless battery of energy walking along. Even when shit hits the fan you have someone who keeps up the spirit and is motivated to pull through. Who stays calm, doesn’t panic and shows no stress. Or at least not when you can see it.



Having a freelancer that is passionate about every aspect of the event, from catering to technical setup, safety and decor or animation… That’s something you notice. It gives you someone that will try to exceed expections in just about everything he does. Who keeps improving his work. A perfectionist. Are you ready to handle that?



The power of a freelancer lies in its network. Whether it’s other freelancers or a contact sheet full of suppliers. Working together for different clients, with ranging budgets at several locations gives a lot of perspective.

Who are some of my clients

I work with a lot of event agencies. Sometimes clients find me directly.
