You cant generate a report just like that but there is a good page I will link below that shows you how to use the PowerCLI to produce the reporting. You can modify their example search to check for a specific user.

I would recommend, and use Event-O-Matic, it can pick the actual event from, vCenter Tasks and Events, and then generate the actual PowerCLI to execute

see here

http://www.lucd.info/tag/event/

or use this code here

http://vninja.net/virtualization/exporting-vcenter-events-powercli/

to get all events between start and stop time/dates, export to notepad, and delete the events you do not need.

You will also need the following:-

I would recommend using the following, also VMware recommends the use of PowerCLI, which is PowerShell interface with vSphere-specific additions.

http://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/server/vsphere/automationtools/powercli

One of the simplest PowerCLI examples, and something which is actually extremely useful on its own, is the Get-VM cmdlet. Which lists VMs.

PowerCLI can be a bit overwhelming to use,  But it can be enhanced with a nice toolset and a library of preconfigured scripts to jump-start your mass changes, which is possible with PowerGUI
