No, why does it matter to the partner? Are you trying to hire them into your group at P?

If you have a relationship with the client, you don't need to tell the partner unless it could impact the project. If I'm your friend and also your client and confide in you, you don't have to report everything I say to the partner

If you're referring him to your firm, that's a discussion to have with the recruitment team. In any case, what do you stand to gain by telling the partner, and why would your partner even want/need to know?

like

I don't fully get it, is he like the main client lead and/or trying to get a job at Pwc? If neither, what does it have to do with the partner?

like

No. The client trusts you. Don't violate that if he's not asking for anything inappropriate.

like

Certainly yes

Yes. Partner could help.

Does the client have a relationship with the partner too? Can the partner help? Could the client benefit and remain further committed to working with the firm because you helped him? If the answer is yes to these, why not involve the ptr? If client doesn't know ptr, then maybe not.

Partners: we've noticed how hard you've worked on this project where we completely abandoned you, did not supply you with adequate resources to complete your task, and rebuffed every attempt you made to ask for assistance. So we just wanted to take this moment to tell you that hopefully this has been a learning opportunity and you'll know better than to let us do that in the future.
